HOPE With a Cross in the O

I was looking at clothes that I haven't gotten around to wearing for several years.
You see, I am your standard packrat.

I found a short sleeve red and white stripe blouse.

Red has always been my favorite color.
I decided to launder it and wear it since I have lost weight.

I always check pockets before laundering. On the left upper pocket was a beautiful golden pin that I couldn't recall owning but knew it had to be mine. It had a message I really needed this particular day.

The pin is shaped like a rainbow with the word "HOPE" below, H is connected to the left end, E connected to the right with O and P in the middle. In the center of the O is an imprinted cross.

I removed the pin, smiling as I did. I have arthritis so I dropped HOPE but still held onto the back holding clasp.

"Oh no" I said aloud. "I have lost HOPE". It had landed underneath my bed.

Determined to find HOPE I held onto the foot of the bed and a bookcase nearby then stooped down. I was really in physical pain... but I couldn't see or find HOPE . I struggled and stood back up.

Standing there, I knew that I just didn't want to give up HOPE after finding it again. So back down on my knees I go. Finally I saw something...it was HOPE turned upside down...just like my life has been lately.

I stretched forth my arm , grasped HOPE and I was smiling again.

I don't want to forget having HOPE, hanging onto HOPE, living with HOPE ever again, and I will wear my pin that has a cross in the O as a reminder of why I have HOPE in the first place in my life.

God gives us little reminders everyday if we pay attention. He will say in some way "Don't give up." This is true for you as well as for me.

Hope and faith are tremendous antidotes against evil's quills. As Christians we have the shield to twarf them off.

Never give up HOPE.

What a beautiful article.A couple of typo's near the end that you might want to correct, but the article is very encouraging. Would make a good story on the back of a church bulletin!
