Chapter 2, Page 9, Book 14

What's Hope?

Hope is knowing that a positive outcome awaits. 

Hope is not only expecting a dream to come true, but having a deep assurance that it's within your reach. 

Hope is saying you can. 

Hope is knowing that you can improve and that you always get better with practice. 

Hope is knowing that you can achieve your goals through hard work and persistence. 

 Hope is looking to the future with joy and having an expectation of better things to come. 

Hope is the knowledge that life is everlasting, and that miracles happen every day. 

 Hope is something that never abandons you. Even when your life is filled with sadness and disappointment, a spark remains inside to help you get through the rough times. 

 Hope is one of God's greatest gifts to you, because it's the magic that inspires you to keep trying, learning, loving, and living.

Sitting here on a cold and snowy morning here in northern Ohio and hoping you all have a wonderful Sunday.

Hope, definitely one of the better words in our language.
I hope you have a great day in the beauty of the snow and God's love.

I like that hope poem; so true in so many aspects of it, Ma. I am hoping that some day soon it warms up for you all!

I think that you have to work hard at times to make sure you keep even a tiny ember of hope even when you don't think you can.

I feel for you with all this cold weather, but maybe it won't be long now until you will see some warmer days. We have had a nice weekend the weather man is talking about another freeze in the northern part of our state this week. I just hope it doesn't get this for down. Take care. Jean

Nice to read many things about "Hope".


Of everything you said about hope, I think the most important thing is that it will NOT abandon you.
