So this is my inaugural post on A2Z Hope. I was considering a dashing, vibrant prose on the finer points of, well, something. A post that was bold and brash to kick things off with. However, I then considered what is truly important to me and it was this:
I enjoy the simplistic as much as the ornate. But when you strip everything away what do you have left? You have day-to-day life. For some that involves hardships many of us can never begin to imagine. For others, such an opulent existence as is only in a far off dream for most. But each and every one of us has exactly this: 24 hours. 28,000 (give or take) breaths each day, from sun up to sun down and back til sun up again.
What do you do with your day? What is your L-I-F-E made of, what is it worth, what is its value? Are you giving hope? Are you imparting life, love and laughter? Do you share the gifts and talents that God has given you with those around you?
As you are thinking about your answer ( …this space reserved for thinking… ) I encourage you to consider one thing you can do to impart hope to someone else as soon as you finish reading this post. It doesn’t have to be anything big, only meaningful. A few ideas to get you started: Encourage someone in a project they enjoy. Tell them you believe in them. Let them know you are proud of them. Through even such a small act you are imparting hope and making your life a bit more “worth the living”.
