Hope comes in many shapes and in many forms.

What is in today goes out tomorrow and we have a new set of norms.

Hope is what is defined in the Scriptures as God’s gift.

We seek it when down to help give us a lift.

Hope, is it a feeling, a place, a person or a thing?

Maybe it is the happiness and joy that it can bring.

Hope is what you want it to be for you and you alone.

The judgment, condemnation after confessing and to atone.

Hope can mean different things to different people all at the same time.

Promotion, validation, acceptance and sometimes just a peace of mind.

Hope defined is a feeling of expectation and desire for a sure thing to happen.

It can be anything and everything that you wish or dream to imagine.

Hope can be a color that demonstrates the way you see things or how you feel.

A state of mind, a prayer, a song, even a kind word that can help you to heal.

Hope is whatever you wish it to be. Hope is what is needed to keep you free.

If you are experiencing pain of any kind, hold on because the pain does end. Keep

smiling and your hope will manifest into that feeling of expectation and come to keep

you reaching for the stars, your goals and dreams. Hope, it is a magic word, small but

yet so powerful. Bless you always.

H – hold

O – on
