I have spent a lot of time in the recent past thinking about HOPE.
There have been many tragedies to young families in our community…
There are people very near to my heart who are battling cancer….
There is hunger, unemployment and homelessness all around me…
There is a longing for true community, honest relationships and real living…
I wonder what it is you hope for…..
I believe hope can be born in very dark places….
I believe hope can be born in the realization of our dreams…
I have learned that to be hopeful does not take away pain or struggling or make life easy. But when Hope is the anchor of my soul, it allows me a different perspective on the valleys and the mountain tops and all the terrain in between.
I have learned that if I have hope, I can be an encouragement to other’s and journey through dark spaces and celebrate bright moments, both in my own life and to others who cross my path!
So, how hopeful are you today? It is my hope that you will dare to hope for hope itself!
