Here's the thing about hope: it's a bear. No matter how much you try to grab it by the throat, it just seems to rear its ugly head given the first opportunity. It's relentless. It's tirelessly optimistic. And if your hope is not in the One who is endlessly perfect, it will break your heart.
Fortunately for me, my hope is in Him. And things just keep coming up roses. Even if I don't always get what I want.
