I have discovered something I didn’t know before having my knee replaced. Hope is believing that tomorrow I will be a little bit better than today, move a little more, walk a little farther, hurt a little less, love a little more, and so on. Hope gives us motivation, a positive reason to put one foot in front of the other. That’s why God said faith, hope and love are a big deal – the only deal. Only faith pleases him, hope makes us see this glass half full, and love is a happy command. Gosh, I could wax eloquent here, but I’ll wrap it up at that. Feel free to give me your thoughts, I’m all alone over here you know.
