I recently shared with my friend Sandi that I view faith and hope as bookends—standing sentinel—on each side of love. In my experience:
Faith has a track record — it’s associated with something (person, place, thing, event, or opportunity) that we have confidence in; something we have reason to believe will come through for us.
Hope is brand new — somewhat like 2014, it hasn’t established a track record yet; it’s unfamiliar. Having no previous experience with it, we hope everything is going to turn out all right.
Love outweighs everything else — a powerful ally in any situation, bar none.
What is your greatest hope for this newly minted year?
