WONDER AND HOPE

I went to see this movie recently.  One of the best movies I have seen in a LONG time!  A musical--it may not tickle the fancy of all of you--but I came away with new tunes playing in my head and toes that refuse to not tap.


I left the theater with several thoughts about the plot and subplots.  I especially enjoy movies which cause me to think.  WHY would I come away thinking, "I could watch that again?"  Probably because the main theme behind the movie is wonder and hope.  We all love to experience wonder in our lives.  And who doesn't look for the hope of a better tomorrow?  The movie capitalizes on these two and leaves us all with the warm fuzzies.  I LOVE to have a good case of the warm fuzzies!
  


I have traveled many a mile and hiked up steep trails to see the wonder of God's creation such as this picture.  When I hold a baby, I am always amazed by the wonder of new life.  I sit in wonder as I watch premier athletes perform.  All of us relish having our souls tickled by the thrill of experiencing wonders that boggle even our greatest imagination.


Without hope is there any reason for tomorrow?  Hope keeps us going--inspires us to reach for the brass ring--challenges us to look beyond today.  Hope is the recognition tomorrow can be a better day.  

A fantasy world to lose myself in for a couple of hours, the movie left me remembering why we all keep going.  Why we continue to put one foot in front of the other.  Hope is the reason and hope is a gift that allows us to believe what we have been promised--a future.

God is the author of hope and the wonder of it all is Jesus is the answer to why we should believe things will be better.  It is truly a wonder that Jesus gave His all so that we might have the assurance of a hope and a future.  So thankful for the wonder of having the blessing of hope ~ they give me good cause to get out of the bed every morning~in anticipation of the wonder that only hope can bring.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
