"Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow." 

Lyrics from a popular hymn. Lyrics that accept weak and weary feelings yet recognize the need to ask for strength for just today. Lyrics that recognize a lack of hope today yet understand the necessity of believing that tomorrow will bring hope. Lyrics that recognize a season of deep pain, hurt, and fear yet refuse to accept that hope can be anything other than bright. 

May we acknowledge and accept our hurts and ask daily for strength. May we remember and believe that bright hope is just around the corner.
