Day 8 - Hope - Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge

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

I don't know the author of this quote, but I sure do like it!

Because for years I've heard people poo-poo Hope, saying it's the weak second cousin of Faith. 


Hope is powerful, energizing, the foundation upon which we build our dreams. 

It's the SEED from which those other action oriented words spring. Hope is bursting with life and potential!

Can ya tell I'm a big believer in nurturing Hope?? 

We start with Hope, water it with Action, Patience and Persistence, and sooner or later... we're rewarded with results.

Hope is powerful!

  1. I guess this would be the bunny for me. You nurtured Hope in me when I'd given up and thought there was no hope. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. Good choice!

    1. This reminds me of "Freely we have received, freely we give." I'm so glad I could pass on some Hope that was given to me. :-)
