Humming in the dark…

I came across this meditation from Henri Nouwen recently.. and I post it here for myself and for everyone else in need of hope.

“Hope means to keep living
amid desperation
and to keep humming
in the darkness.

Hope is knowing that there is love,
it is trust in tomorrow.

It is falling asleep
and waking up again
when the sun rises.

In the midst of a gale at sea,
it is to discover land.

In the eyes of another,
it is to see that you are understood.

There will also be prayer . . .
And you will be held
in God’s hands.”
