perfection... and yes you were right, the phone call was a hard one.
oh Linda... i love how you differentiate between the two... i think i've been clinging to the wrong one. today, i choose elpida. thank you. ((i miss you... is this possible, since i haven't met you? :)))
This is perfect ... just perfect. And I smiled when I saw your new banner. It reminds me of pillowcase dolls I used to make.
Beautiful Linda! I have never seen a 'hope' plant before... I love it. I have to take a look and see if they can grow around here! :)
this Hope i stand in as well...nice play on words too...beautiful flower...
Love this so very much.Thanks so much for your kind comment today Linda. Blessings to you "fellow grandma"!Elizabethhttp://www.justfollowingjesus.com
Great contrast between the frail hope and the hope offered by our Lord.Thanks for sharing with One ShotWould love to have you submit something to our competition which closes on Friday. Theme is Through a Child's EyesMoon Smiles
Two hopes - I like this, Linda!
pretty doll and patchwork. they look like an amish design.
Ah! Yes. There is a difference. And "esperanza?" I wonder which one that is as I remember Camp Esperanza, established near the miners there beneath the ground.
it is all we have some days ~blessings
Very nice poem - I like the difference you point out - hope without belief doesn't go very far...
Thank you, I love learning new words.
Beautiful way to capture hope in various ways... I liked it... could relate to the first one like a child...ॐ नमः शिवायOm Namah ShivayaTwitter: @VerseEveryDayBlog: http://shadowdancingwithmind.blogspot.com/
yes! oh, i too think i've been clinging to the wrong kind of hope. that vapor thin kind has nothing on elpida! love love love this!
confident expectation...I need that today!Thank you, Linda!
Linda this is awesome...hope is such a blessed thing. :-)
love the difference that you capture...i choose Elpida as well...on christ the solid rock i stand...xo
Nice contrast between the stanzas. I like that Greek word :)
Elpida...i think this is my new favorite word.
Hi Linda!I love the use of another language to inspire writing! Elpida ~ beautifuland your poem is wonderful. We often stand before hope uncertain, but gain that confidence with an infusion of God's Grace ~Linda, you inspire ~*have a lovely, restful weekend*~Mariaps. I just love your new blog photo.The doll and little quilt are so darling ♥
Your poetry is beautiful, Linda. You have such a gift with words.I also enjoyed reading V.A. and Daddy's Eyes this morning. P.S. to the previous post. Isn't it wonderful having a husband who will do the dishes? I appreciate that so much :)
I love how you showed us in words two types of hope and how much stronger the second one is.I have not heard of such a plant, but I think it's beautiful. Your poetry is inspiring---gently teaching us with its awesome personification. (This English teacher loves personification!)
i heart your new header photo. :) i also needed your words today as i've been clinging to the wrong type of hope. thank you!
