What hope means
Hope is bright shining light which keeps darkness at the bay
Hope is gentle cold breeze on a hot summer day
Hope is to remain positive when going gets tough
hope is seeking more when others think u had enough
What hope means
Hope is dreaming of tomorrow
Hope is simmering under sorrow
Hope is sparkles when tears in our eyes
Hope is a beautiful thing & beautiful things never dies
What hope means
Hope is as light as a feather
Hope keeps all of us together
Hope is ubiquitous and free of cost
hope is the last thing ever lost.....

Count your blessings.
Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence.
May your days be many and your troubles be few.
May all God's blessings descend upon you.
May peace be within you may your heart be strong.
May you find what you're seeking wherever you roam.
Kind words are such a blessing to the needful, if one but knew the pleasure that they bring.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.
When we lose one blessing, another is often most unexpectedly given in its place.
Poet: C.W. Longenecker
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you donít
If you like to win but think you canít,
Itís almost a cinch you wonít.
If you think youíll lose, youíre lost.
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellowís will
Itís all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are.
Youíve got to think high to rise.
Youíve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.
Lifeís battles donít always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
ďMay God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.Ē

THE BUZZARD, THE BAT AND THE BUMBLEBEE
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and
is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its
ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is
that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a
run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit,
it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner
for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom.. It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee. We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up! That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem! Just look up.
Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!
Live simply, love generously , care deeply, speak kindly and trust in our Creator who loves us.
SEND THIS TO A FRIEND .... I did.
Be kinder than necessary for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle
