Wednesday of Hope – Breathing Hope

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

– Arundhati Roy

Wednesday of Hope – Forgiving

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.

– Lewis B. Smedes

Wednesday of Hope – Saved by Hope

guest_house_2016_057

Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime;
therefore, we must be saved by hope.
Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense
in any immediate context of history;
therefore, we must be saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone;
therefore we are saved by love.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr
