Wednesday’s Child Is Full of . . . Hope

The theme for the month of November (on Sundays) is still Gratitude. But for this particular Wednesday, I’ve decided we need a change in the words of the nursery rhyme. I’m going to squeeze a little hope in alongside gratitude. Don’t you think they’ll do well together???

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe  hope,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonnie and blithe and good and gay.

    That is lovely. But we need more than hope today.

      It is ever all we have, and it’s really not what we have but what we do, I think. A verb.

    *OPreach brought a welcomed message. We do* *need hope. Nightmares disappear when we* *awaken – this nightmare only leaves when sleep* *comes. It shouldn’t have to be this way.*

      Thanks, Mary Ellen. I was born on a Thursday. So supposedly I have “far to go.” Guess I’m not done yet! 😁

    Thanks, I was born on Saturday. Yes, I do have to work hard for a living. It has made me grateful to God for all His blessings.
