Hope Begins With You

dream trees

Hope is a dream. It is quiet. It begins as a whisper in the dead of night in the cold darkness of winter. Hope is the pale sun in the distance just beyond your fingertips. It is nourished by the heart and it’s loved by the soul. Hope never gives up. Hope is a window to bright sunny vistas and clear blue horizons. Hope is a rock. It is a port in the storm. It is steady and true. Hope knows the storm cannot last forever.
Hope is alive and it is magic. It is all-powerful and nothing can be accomplished without it. Hope keeps the home fires burning and hope shows the way. It fights off the darkness. Hope is the light. Hope is essential for life to thrive. It can make your wildest dreams come true. Hope starts with a spark in the dark but that can set fire to flame. It all begins with you.

~N.L McKinley~


“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

~Barack Obama~

  2. It is so terrible and pointless – we can all be better at preventing the kind or in the least a better attempt than we do – agree with Barack Obama – his Newtown-speech should go in the hearts of all people and be just as important as “The Gettysburg Address” the speech by US-president Abraham Lincoln (1863) – it’s time for change now… ;-/

  3. Let me say too that desire cannot live without hope and so we can only hope for what we desire and it is also true that hope is essential for life because where there is life there is hope. Nice post Nancy. :)))
