Yup! That’s the first word that comes to mind as I try to create this new website. And I thought my focus was on hope! Well, actually, hope is what’s keeping me going through this process.IMAG0142

Hope has everything to do with focus. Right now I’m focusing on the big picture – hundreds of visitors to my blog receiving hope for their journey. That’s why I will persist. If I focused on my frustrations – inadequate computer skills, inability to understand the terminology, insecurity about anyone but you visiting my blog – you wouldn’t be reading this right now because I would have quit long ago.

So what’s your current frustration? Look past it to the bigger picture and keep going. Hang on to hope!

    Thanks, Salliann! I’m glad I persisted too – it’s a “todo” I finally did.

    Hi Barbara, I’d actually like to just have my first name listed in the comment I wrote. Not sure how to do that….

    I would have given up too, but you reminded me, it’s not about us, it is about God’s gift in us. We must use it for His glory. Thanks for reminding us! Thanks for taking a risk yourself and acting on it. I look forward to being encouraged by you.
