Hold on to Hope

Processed with Snapseed.
 
I saw the moon setting
As I drove to work
Early this morning.

It hung over the horizon,
Round and orange,
Its beauty suspended
Over the blackness of trees
The shadows of houses.

The full moon
Reminds me that life goes on
Even in the midst
Of chaos, of grief,
Of confusion or hopelessness.

Hold on to hope, to beauty,
To love, to the assurance
That no matter what we face,
God is there beside us, saying,
“You are my beloved.”

  1. Moon shines in my bathroom window. I have a half curtain in there and sometimes the moon is so bright that it lights up the bathroom. I think of the little rhyme “I see the moon and the moon sees me. God bless the moon and God bless me.
