GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Some say it floats. Others that is springs eternal. We're urged to never give it up.
Hope. Some days it's easier to cling to than others, no? Like when your favorite basketball team gets blanked by their arch enemy. Or you blow a big presentation at work. Or you stand by helplessly watching your child hurt and can do nothing to ease the pain no matter how badly you want to smash in the face of its source. I digress.
The thing about Hope is; it's always lurking just around the corner. It's what keeps us going during the hard times; it's what helps us get through the night to the light of day. Along with its cousins Faith and Love, Hope is one of a trio of tenets upon which life itself is built.
And speaking of which: As long as there is life, there is hope. So hold on; things are rarely as bad as they seem. Have some hope and know they'll be looking up soon.
R. Alleluia, alleluia. May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts, that we may know what is the hope that belongs to our call.
