Hope shines brightest in the darkest moments.
When all looks well, we are not looking for Hope, for our circumstances are pleasing us.
It is in those moments of darkness, we can keep looking at all that is wrong OR we can breathe, relax our minds and seek a glimmer of hope.
Once we find the glimmer we can stay aware until we see the glow. That glow gives us direction.
Perhaps, if not for the darkness, we would not have looked for the light.
Darkness can open our minds to something better.
