Hope is worth the risk.
Even when the odds are low
And the world seems such a mess
And disappointment threatens
Hope, hope itself, is worth the risk.
It keeps the heart pumping
And the eyes open to what may come
And anticipates the sudden intake of breath
Brought by the delightful surprise
That is (hopefully) just around the corner.
Yes, hope is worth the risk.
And most especially when it is grounded
In resurrection –
The one that has happened
And the one that will happen, soon.
So … delight with me in the coming delight.
Even disappointment cannot erase
The delight of sharing hope with you.
