There's Hope in Front of Me

God has been speaking an anthem of hope to me lately.  I see the repetition of hope all around me.

On my wall:

In my bedroom:
This is a poem I wrote in Jr. High, and later, as adults, my life long friend made it into calligraphy and framed it for me.  "Keep hope deep within your heart.  When you are put on the edge of a cliff, Hope will pull you back up.  Hope is what keeps us all alive."

In my bathroom:
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow."

On my hand:

On the radio:

Even on my dear friend's blog:

Last night we were watching the Amazing Spiderman 2 movie, if you've seen it, do you remember Gwen's speech?

It's easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today,
but there will be dark days ahead of us too,
and there'll be days where you feel all alone,
and that's when hope is needed most.

Keep it alive. No matter how buried it gets,
or lost you feel, you must promise me,
that you will hold on to hope and keep it alive.

We have to be greater than what we suffer.
My wish for you, is to become hope. People need that.
