hope ...

Pour a cup of hope today ...
In her blog post today, Holley Gerth talks about finding hope in unexpected places.

Her words reached out to me and gave me hope.  Especially when she talks about facing what we never wanted to face and then not only does our faith survive and thrive ... but we do too.

I'm there.  Facing things I never thought I would face.  Never wanted to face.  But I have stood firm, stood tall, and have stood the test.  I have held fast to my faith, my values, and my beliefs.  I have not been swayed in the darkness, by the darkness, and instead have clung to the light of hope.

You can too.

We are glad for our troubles also. 
We know that troubles help us learn not to give up. 
When we have learned not to give up, it shows we have stood the test. 
When we have stood the test, it gives us hope.
~ Romans 5:3-4 NLV ~


  1. Thank you Cindi for the encouragement. Clinging to the light of hope in dark times is very important. I am also reminded of this scripture.

    @ Corinthians 1:3-5
    3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God


A side note to my Words on Wednesday ~ I've truly enjoyed reading everyone's blogs, comments, and posts the past few months, but unfortunately have not been able to comment from Safari, and have to use Chrome for commenting. It is frustrating and annoying to have to log out of one and into the other just for commenting, when everything else I do is on Safari. I'm not sure if it is because I'm using a Mac, but I haven't been able to sign into Google on Safari. I'm still trying, however, just know that if I don't comment, it's not because I haven't enjoyed reading or seeing Sunday's Selections photos.
