Where there is giving, there is hope.

December 12th - give hope

They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world:  someone to love, something to do a, and something to hope for.

Tom Bodett

The best gift we can give to others is a little hope.  It is the balm for the soul.  There is always someone out there who is dealing with a worse situation that you are.  They need some hope in their lives.  

If all we can give this year is hope, then that just might be enough for someone. Hope is the expectation of good that is based on the promises of God.

Hope is vital to bringing comfort.  Hope gives us stability and assurance .It gives us gladness.  Hope enables us to understand trials and gives us strength to work hard and persevere.  Hope causes us to sing praise and give thanks.

Without hope we are a hopeless people. Hope lets people that they are not alone.  It lets them know that someone cares . Hope makes us resilient and courageous.  We can share our hope with others  Hope is a resource we can grow, give and share together.  

Giving someone a little encouragement can enable them to hope they can do something that they need to do.  Hope is needed more now than ever, so share hope with those that need it.

Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering it will be happier.

Alfred Lord Tennyson

Keep hope you hearts.

This is the best written explanation of hope I have read. So very true. It is sad to see and know someone who appears to have no hope. Yes we need to encourage and bring hope into THAT life if possible.

I love that quote by Tom Bodett!! Maybe, in these dark days, hope is the greatest gift we can give one another.
