Hope Harnessed with Faith.
May 28th, 2009

reachingThere has been a thread throughout my writing that has tried (I hope) to express that Hope is much more than some impotent escape of our imagination when we seemingly have nothing else or our desires get the best of us.

The morning had gone well with some cleaning projects accomplished, loads of laundry done and the bike cleaned after I got caught in thunder storms yesterday and everything was soaked and dirty on the bike. I got the grill out, the gas was hooked up and we prepared to grill brat wurst and chicken for our mid afternoon Memorial Day grill feast.

So, I got on the bike and headed west into the late afternoon sun. I was looking for peace.

Arlington Hope
May 21st, 2009

arlingtonI stood on the the small rise and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. It was my first time there, and my breath escaped me. I didn’t even care as I beheld the scenery before me. I looked out over the fields of white tombstones and crosses perfectly lined up and flowing with the contour of the land and I was breathless. I couldn’t count the numbers. It was just too many. And so,….I cried.
