yet, when I look up to the sky, I somehow feel that everything will change
for the better, that this cruelty too shall end, that peace and tranquility
will return once more." Anne
Frank, Diarist (1929-1945)
Love extends an olive leaf to the loved one and says, "I have hope in you." Love is just as quick to say, "I have hope for you."
You can say those words. You are a flood survivor. By God's grace you have found your way to dry land. You know what it's like to see the waters subside. And since you do, since you passed through a flood and lived to tell about it, you are qualified to give hope to someone else. Max Lucado From A Love Worth Giving: Living in the Overflow of God's Love
