PH Hope

Faith, hope, and charity complement each other, and as one increases, the others grow as well. Hope comes of faith, for without faith, there is no hope. In like manner faith comes of hope, for faith is “the substance of things hoped for.”

This is a quote that hangs on my fridge it gives me hope and I happen to have these reminders around my home



I teach because I have hope for the future




I also think my two favorite things to photograph bring me hope: weddings

and babies

Reading your comments got me thinking of a hymn whose title has stuck with me through the years: "Faith, hope and charity"... Also, the idea that "It's darkest before dawn".

Great post for the theme! And I share your hope. My contribution is up this morning, and represents my hope for the future as well.

Great thought on Hope. Loved all your pictures especially the babies foot - nothing brings hope for the future like a new precious baby. We need more teachers that can bring hope to our future generations - Thanks for being one!!
