30 Nov THIS WEEK: OFFER HOPE
Hope is an awesome word. There’s no way to say the word “hope” and not feel a sense of excitement, progress, possibilities, and new horizons. But “hope” can also conjure up tougher thoughts, because we often don’t think of or use the word “hope” until we see or feel something depressing, sad, or dark. But even then, it sure is comforting to know that we can always have hope… because it carries us. So, this week, we want you to OFFER HOPE in one of two ways. Maybe you know someone who is going through a rough patch in life and they could use some words of encouragement and a good friend to help them see beyond their current situation. If you do, go ahead, offer them hope. Or maybe you are someone who just likes to think about how the future could look and believes good things are possible, and better yet, wants to do something about it. Maybe you hope for more learning gardens in schools or clean water for everyone or world peace. Without this vision and your all-important hope, there is no way these things will become a reality. And, as you make your hopes known, you will also give hope to those around you… which is another way of offering hope. Get it? Offering hope matters.
