H is for Hope

Easter is just behind us and I cannot stop thinking about what it means: Hope for all. I love this time of year - flowers bloom, skies clear, the world awakens again and hope permeates everything. Spring is full of promise and promise is found first in hope - that something more is waiting just around the next corner; just beyond the next bend.

Hope is what keeps us going, especially when combined with faith. I think the two are linked so much it's hard to think of one without the other. Hope is what makes me smile when I think of what could be. Hope is what makes the days a little less monotonous. Faith, Hope and Love...maybe my favorite trilogy of all time!

Faith is the promise. Hope is my reaction to the promise. Love is what I do because of the promise. Thankful for a reason to have Hope in a world that likes to make you feel hopeless sometimes.
