Lent Day 9

First Signs

…but remember me when it is well with you…  Genesis 40:1-23  It would be another two years before Pharaoh’s cupbearer remembered Joseph. I am reminded of the movie 12 Years A Slave, when Solomon Northup, abducted from his home in Upstate New York and enslaved on a plantation in New Orleans, once again places his hope in the kind and yet dangerous hand of another man. Solomon had been betrayed before but it didn’t keep him from holding to the hope of regaining his freedom. So when the first sign of the next possibility arose, he tried again. Although he could not have known to whom he could trust his story, he did know that he could trust in his hope.
