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.

The poem above seems to pretty well wrap up my thoughts on Hope and tomorrow we’ll change our focus to a favorite subject of mine - LOVE.  Hope is the first stop on journey toward Christmas and thankfully we’ll have three more.  Love, Joy and Peace.  

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.      

Robert H. Schuller

Taking time on the journey to stop and reflect awhile on the importance of these blessings in our lives will hopefully makes us more aware of the the miracle of Christmas and what it means to each of us in our lives

It is a journey of triumph and struggle, promise and possibility, hope and peace.  Remember it is the journey that matters in the end. Hope is the light that can lead you in those dark period towards your goals.

Hope is the feeling you have, that the feeling you have, isn't permanent.

I like that What's Hope poem, especially the first line about hope knowing a positive outcome awaits. It may be a different outcome than we want, but for the most part it has always been a positive one or a one that moves us forward. I have enjoyed your thoughts, quotes you've shared, etc., about hope and looking forward to the next one with love!

Robert H. Schuller had a way of saying things you could remember when I listened to him. Of course the poem says it like it is. My hope is to read about Love in the morrow. I like having HOPE!~
