Welcome, Beloved!

Today is the day for celebrating, feasting, donning the green of spring, and searching for that elusive pot ‘o gold on St. Patrick’s Day while staying at home! I believe we need a little luck of the Irish in our world today!

And hope.

Well, let’s see, what does hope do? What is the purpose of hope? According to the Huffington Post: “Faith and hope are defined in the dictionary as follows; Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing or a belief not based on proof and Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation or desire. Faith says it is so now, and hope says in the future it could happen.”

That about sums it up.

But what about the purpose of hope and faith? To alleviate fear. Fear of present circumstances or fear of the future.

However, I believe we have an abundance of hope here in Middle-Pause, don’t you agree?

And love. Lots of it! It’s showing in your love letters! Keep um comin’! Which brings me to our submissions.

Drum rolls please…
