Day 3 - hope brings joy

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.

Samuel Smiles

Hope moves us forward.  It’s a joyful longing for future good.  Hope deletes regrets and underlines expectation.  It is worth living today because tomorrow seems so much brighter.

Faith fuels hope, but hope also fuels faith. Without faith we cannot soar in hope, but without hope faith will falter.  Just as we can drawer others down by our recriminations and moping, so we can inspire and motivate others through our inspirational hope.  

Hope does not mean we sit and wait.  Hope motivates action because hope grabs what is out of sight.

There is mo medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow.

I like that. Hope Only Positive Expectations. Even in the negative, there is always a positive to be found!

Good one! Your phrase, "Faith fuels hope, but hope also fuels faith" brings to mind a circle. No beginning, no end … rather an endless supply of goodwill.
