The “F” Word …

Conversation this afternoon:

Me: “Yeah, there are some pretty cool things happening. But I have this philosophy about God and his desire to screw with my life.”

Friend: No response, just the regular smile.

Me: “So, I’ve decided that the safest thing for me in this situation is to not hope. I’m way too afraid to think about hoping for this.

Friend: “It’s OK. I’ll hope for you.”

Overwhelmed and under the wave of grace she plunged me into. I wonder … do I carry hope for friends who can’t carry it themselves? I want to.

    Good point – I always hope the best for people – it’s just a nice attitude to have for others around you.
