to hope...

i'm thinking a lot about hope today, although i'm not quite sure why.

perhaps it is the visuals from haiti that keep breaking my heart. or the friend whose health situation has simply not improved. maybe the unrealized dreams in my own life.

but whatever it is about, i am grateful for all the things that i still hope for, all the things i am still waiting to see fulfilled... for all that is unfinished, for all that is undone.

after all, i'm still alive, and another day is about to begin...

all human wisdom is summed up in two words—
wait and hope. | alexandre dumas père

for in this hope we were saved.
but hope that is seen is no hope at all.
who hopes for what they already have?
but if we hope for what we do not yet have,
we wait for it patiently. | romans 8:24, 25

hope has two beautiful daughters.
their names are anger and courage;
anger at the way things are,
and courage to see that they do not
remain the way they are. | augustine of hippo

to hope means to be ready
at every moment for that which is not yet born,
and yet not become desperate
if there is no birth in our lifetime. | emily dickinson
