We Are Doubly Blessed

Gratitude makes us feel bursting with delight, just to remember the gifts we have received. Thus we are doubly blessed when we receive something: for the gift itself and later, in recall, for the miracle of having been given it.

Wednesday of Hope – Grateful that there Is More Good in the World

Men frequently think that the evils in the world are more numerous than the good things; many sayings and songs of the nations dwell on this idea. …Not only common people make this mistake, but even many who think they are wise.

– Maimonides

Wednesday of Hope – Let’s Dance

We did not ask for this room or this music; we were invited in. Therefore, because the dark surrounds us, let us turn our faces toward the light. Let us endure hardship to be grateful for plenty…We did not ask for this room or this music. But because we are here, let us dance.

– Stephen King

Reverence and Respect for Life

Respect life, revere life. There is nothing more holy than life, nothing more divine than life.

– Osho

Wednesday of Hope – Holding the Memory of Light

This is the first and most important lesson every writer learns, that words are ever only a memory of the thing itself. Like catching sunlight in your cupped hands so you have it later when the dark comes on. Sometimes, the words, the memory of the light are all we have to keep us steady until the night ends.

– Brian Andreas, Story of the Day

Wednesday of Hope – Hope in the Dark

Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and. work: you don’t give up.

– Anne Lamott

Wednesday of Hope – In the Stillness of the Quiet

In the stillness of the quiet, if we listen, we can hear the whisper of the heart giving strength to weakness, courage to fear, hope to despair.

– Howard Thurman
