Hope never truly goes away,
Not even when forced out of mind –
Out of sight.
Abandoned, buried left-alone hope
Miraculously ascends and hovers
Over life’s sundry privations,
Amazingly covering them all.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. ~ Romans 15:13, ESV

Never place a period where God has placed a comma. ~ Gracie Allen

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.  So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love. ~ 1 Corinthians 13:12-13, ESV
