Hope or Faith?

Hope is a beautiful delusion…

The Senses declare, “It cannot be,” but FAITH shouts above the turmoil, “It is!”
Faith counts the thing done before God has acted.”  E. W. Kenyon

“Whatever you ask (claim, demand) in prayer,
believe you receive (take for your own), and you shall have what you say.”  Jesus of Nazareth
Mark 11:24

Hope is the morning song of a sparrow.
Hope is the glimmer of light that excites the edge of a storm cloud.
Hope is the bend in the road.
Hope is the prayer wafting to heaven.
Faith is the Amen!

This is something really taking root in my soul garden.  I hope 😉 this speaks to someone today, and strengthens your resolve once and for all.  May you be blessed, my dear friends, who are so precious to me, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!
