Posted on January 26, 2012 Hope As A Gift

The world is inflicted with so much pain, of chaos, of war and poverty, of sickness, of hardships from all sorts of reasons. There is no better time to bring hope that better things can happen than today. People need to believe and feel once again that love, peace , unity, happiness and hope exist. That there are people out there who cares and try to make this world a better place to live in. That there’s a better future that awaits for our children. A future where they could smile, laugh, feel safe and more importantly experience love.

Thank you to Connie Wayne of http://ahopefortoday.com and Mindblur ofhttp://mindblur.wordpress.com for their generosity. Thank you for inspiring others to reach out and give a piece of themselves through their works, words and creative talents.

    Hi Jackie I have just found your pingback by accident, thank you, it seems WordPress have not sent me notification on a few, I found another one yesterday and one a few weeks ago, but they were also around the time my Sister died and I did loose it for awhile, so I’m sorry you were not thanked.

    I do appreciate it when others feel my posts are of value and I always approve them unless the Blog they represent is teaching something harmful or blatantly against God’s Truth but not just because they don’t understand the things I share, perhaps their wanting to, so I seek to reach out and encourage them but of course some do mean ill will and we need to discern if this is so.

    Thank you again – Christian Love and blessings from us both
