Hope: The feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best. –
The air was cooler than forecasted and the sky was overcast but I held onto “hope” that tomorrow would be a better day. For the moment, I am content to watch the sunset cast hues of gold across its path. The fields catch a glimpse of Heaven before the shadows fall across the ground, another day comes to a close. There will be another tomorrow, another sunrise that brings the light of a new day – new hope.
Sure enough, the sun shines and I am given yet another gift….hope (Hatikvah) for the journey of today, for now, it is enough to take each day for what it is – the gift of the present. It is early with anticipations and hope for good. I can already see it on the horizon…..sunny blue skies with pillowy white clouds. A grand appearance by the sun lessons my memory of the cold winds from the day before. Hope renews… a constant reminder that as long as I look for it, I am capable of finding it in each new day.
Your “better day” may have nothing to do with the weather, it may have everything to do with another chance to love more, forgive more, or embrace more. We are all “doing life” in seasons, regardless. I have today to choose how I plan to use it, and although circumstance may sometimes alter my plan? I know that no matter what it holds, hope will be there in the midst of it all, waiting for a chance to rise. Wait for it…..look for it. and while you are waiting? strive to be content with the present, making the most of the good parts no matter how small.
Here is to today……a gift. Blue skies with bursts of color, may it soften the gray areas in our little corner of the world. Hope is there too.. abundant enough for us to share!
