The Hope of Lent


Hope...is the companion of power, and the mother of success; for who so hopes has within him the gift of miracles.

Samuel Smiles

March 5th - a whisper of hope, a measure of faith



Life is a miracle don't let it slip away,
Open your heart to others, give of yourself each day.
See the beauty in everyone, regardless of where they've been,
Some have a difficult journey and really need a friend.

Share your gifts and talents, listen with your heart.
Do the things you dream about but don't have time to start.

Pick a bouquet of flowers, show someone that you care,
Be gracious and forgiving, for life is never fair.

Hold on to your courage, you may need it down the road,
We all have a cross to bear, it could be a heavy load.

If you practice all these things, wherever you may roam,
You might find both sun and rain, but you'll never feel alone!

In order to see a miracle, we need look no further than our own hands. Just our being here right now is proof of that.  Every day of our life is a miracle, every moment is a miracle.  It is a gift that has no price.



Don't wait for miracles, your whole life is a miracle. 

Albert Einstein

Discover the strength and support to rise above what is around you and create a new path of hope and promise.  Lent reminds us that there is more to life than the physical world. We are all guilty of getting caught up in the practicalities of life; it is only natural to work and rush and plan and worry. Lent offers us an opportunity to reflect on what is really important.

 Always keep hope, MIRACLES happen everyday. 


Don’t give up now. 
Chances are,  
your best kiss, 
your hardest laugh,
 and you greatest day 
are still yet to come.

You ended that post with a great quote. Paraphrased: The best is yet to come!

Is there anything more adorable than a baby lamb?
Yes. I must stop allowing myself to be a 'caught up victim' and reflect on what is really important.

So true to let the time of Lent be a reflective period on all aspects of our lives.

I really like that last paragraph by UNKNOWN. "Don’t give up now. Chances are, your best kiss,
your hardest laugh, and you greatest day are still yet to come."
