Into the Light


Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark.
- George Iles


Once you choose hope, anything's possible.
- Christopher Reeve

When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."

For in this hope we were saved.
Romans 8:24
  
Amazed and Grateful
to all those who selflessly worked and sacrificed to help save the miners of Chile.
Love Prevails

A blessed weekend to you all.

what glorious trees you have captured! ours
haven't begun turning yet. i'm holding my
breath with both anticipation and dread. i
know they will soon lose their leaves.

Wonderful to honor the miners of Chile, sweet friend.
I really do love your picture, the sun shining through these leaves, it's simply b e a u t i f u l ! Most of your trees are still green, I hope the turning will soon begin.
Much love for a joyful Thursday, Maria xxxx The weekend is just around the corner (again). Next week is Fall holiday. We will go to France for a couple of days, looking so soooo forward to that. To spend time together, Mark not being at the office days and evenings, his mobile will join us though... The weather forecast is good, so France nous arrive xxxxx

amen!! where would we be if it were not for hope?

Beautiful trees! We have some isolated color here and there but think our summer was too, too hot for there to be a pretty fall--but I will live vicariously through my blog friends.

A wonderful thing to honor the rescue workers and all those who made this possible. I couldn't help but think of how quiet and lonely it must have been when the last rescue worker was left ALONE--but thank goodness God never leaves us alone--He is the only one who will never leave us or forsake us.

Great post!

Love you my friend,
Dianne

A nice tribute to the 33 miners who have been rescued in Chile! No doubt a great deal of faith and hope was exercised there. Lovely photo.

Rebecca said...

I SO agree about the miners and HOPE (I imagine you heard how the one miner had a daughter born while he was trapped. They named her Hope -- well, the Chilean equivalent.)
