All the great spiritual leaders in history were people of hope. Abraham, Moses, Ruth, Mary, Jesus, Rumi, Gandhi, and Dorothy Day all lived with a promise in their hearts that guided them toward the future without the need to know exactly what it would look like. Let's live with hope. - Henri Nouwen
Life is full of bumps/bruises and mysteries ... but in the middle of all that, I live with hope. Come to think of it ... is there any other way that is worth living?
