There Had To Be Darkness

“There had to be dark and muddy waters so that the sun could have something to background it’s flashing glory.”
― Betty Smith

Darkness does serve a purpose. Life often gets filled with dark and muddy waters. It is in those times that the light can shine its brightest. If there was no darkness, we wouldn’t appreciate the light. The sun represents hope. Each day we are given a new opportunity to see the goodness in our day. I’m sure you have heard it said before, “You can only experience joy in proportion to the amount of sorrow you’ve felt.” So when you are going throught those dark and difficult times, remember the sun will show up again and it will be full of hope and glory! 🙂


Love And Hope


This morning while I was in my garden watering the plants, a baby bunny hopped right up to me. He stopped about 12 inches from my feet and started eating some grass. I stood there in awe. It was so precious. As I stood there watching him, I felt love flood my heart. I knew in that moment it was the love emanating from me that gave that little bunny the green light to come near me.

Love is unconditional. Love matters. And it is the only thing I have to give in my current situation. Last week I received some life shattering news. My only grandchild was diagnosed with a devastating disease that typically causes premature death. My heart is torn almost in two and yet, I remain in love.

I had asked my grandson several years ago, “what is hope?”and he answered, “it’s love.” Hope is Love and Love is Hope. They operate together and now more than ever I am centering myself on the two of them. Although I do not know what the future holds, I know who holds the future and He is Love. There, I shall remain.

I Won’t Give Up

I won’t give up and you have all my love, still looking up, still looking up! I am a Hope Messenger for life! FOREVER HOPEFUL!!! 🙂

Hope In Action


“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.” ~Albert Einstein

Each new day provides us with an opportunity to be active in our hope. When we are doing something, large or small, to improve our situation or that of another, we increase our hope. Hope in action makes a difference. Move in it today! 🙂

Hope To Carry On

You can make it through this moment!

Dig Deep


Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping–believing that he
would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how
many descendants you will have!” Romans 4:18 New Living Translation

You may be facing one of your darkest days. My hope for you is that against all hope, you remain in hope. May you have a strong mind, stayed on the promises of The Most High. When we focus our eyes on him, we can hope when there is no reason for hope. For we know, he will always make a way. So, there is always cause for hope. Much love to you!

Walk In The Light


“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you take it all one day at a time. You try to walk in the light”  ― Marie Lu

The light is always there, hope is alive and well. Each and every day we have a new opportunity to walk in hope. No matter how dark your day may seem, the light will always prevail.

May you be filled with hope and light! 🙂 🙂
