Yesterday when I got home from work, I lit the four tea light candles on the bar in my kitchen. In order they read “Love”, “Joy”, “Hope”, and “Peace”.
I noticed on going to bed last night that one candle still burned once all the others had been snuffed out. It was “Hope”. Upon waking this morning, it got me to thinking about how things seem to be heading in the world we presently live in. Many times the other three do, indeed, seem to be snuffed out in this world. But as long as we have Hope, that small flicker of fire is able to ignite all of the other three.
May God bless us with Hope, that our inner flame might ignite the Power He has instilled in every one of us. Wishing Love, Joy, Hope, and Peace to all who read this.
