“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
"Faith is the bird singing before the dawn breaks."
It's a strange thing about hope and disappointment. We idealists never seem to learn. And yet - the disappointment never seems to destroy us...we continue to hope. To reach for the stars.
Hellen Keller said:
"The world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming it."
Be gentle and generous with others and their hope. You may not see what their hearts see. Yes, suffering may come. If you celebrate their joys and hope along with them though the odds seem great, they may grant you the privilege of also sharing in their sorrows.
