I decided, then, that my word for 2015 will be hope. Ultimately, my hope is in Christ, and the promise of a life to come. Here on earth, I'm hoping for His perspective-- that all things will work together for good, that He knows the plans He has for me and for my sons, and for my mom, and that He will give me the gifts of peace and joy and wisdom and perspective that I need to deal with everything that is going on right now.
I googled "poems of hope" and came across a new-to-me Langston Hughes poem. Given that I am a total morning person, it seemed especially appropriate to start this new year.
"Walkers with the Dawn"
Being walkers with the dawn and morning
Walkers with the sun and morning,
We are not afraid of night,
Nor days of gloom,
Being walkers with the sun and morning.
