“There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty forever beyond its reach.” – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
It is possible to lose hope.
But there has never been a time that everyone lost hope.
Even during the darkest days there is always someone who dares to “look up out of the forsaken land” and keep hope alive.
Be that person if you can…
Stay as close to them as you can.
The ONE THING for today:
Sometimes the only hope you have is someone else’s hope and that can be enough until you find yours.
