And hope is born.

Just like a weed growing in the pavement, hope only needs the tiniest of breaks in the tough times to wiggle up through. I've always been amazed at what the smallest amount of hope can do; what life it can bring to a soul. A little goes a long way.
That's because -
hope says all is not lost.
Hope says things will turn around one day.
Hope says I'm not forgotten; God has heard me.
And that sustains me, especially when the clouds close back up and the blue sky is gone.
I'll remember I've felt hope; I'll remember I've seen God.
And I'll remember that no matter what, the Son is still shining.
