Reflecting again on the nature of hope brings me back to a quote from Frederick Buechner I posted last year.
Click through to see where I think hope ends.
Then at last we see what hope is and where it comes from, hope as the driving power and outermost edge of faith. Hope stands up to its knees in the past and keeps its eyes on the future…shall is the verb of hope.

Grace and peace to you…
