on hope

“What would this world be without hope?

It is the light in the darkness,

joy in sorrow,


strength in weakness;

without it, the world would be desolate indeed.

It beams are like a great searchlight shining in our hearts, and brightening up every corner, until we mount, as with wings, over difficulties and circumstances, and triumph glorious over the enemy, despair.” – Ida Scott Taylor


The Bible is the best book on hope there ever was and ever will be.

on prayer

More to come …

as I’ve been studying prayer at a book study each week,


God kindly helped me to find some of my books on prayer… I really do need to finish unpacking!

“I know not by what methods rare,

But this I know: God answers prayer.

I know not if the blessings sought

Will come in just the guise I thought.

I leave my prayer to Him alone

Whose will is wiser than my own.” – Eliza M. Hickok
