We have been going through a study series on Hope Sunday mornings and it has been a tremendous blessing to me. Some of the messages weren't anything pertaining to me but still were so encouraging. This past Sunday was the last in its series and our pastor used an acronym to define hope
H- holding 
O- on with
P- patient
E- expectations
So simply and beautifully put. Through any circumstance we may be going through we hold onto knowing that "this soon will pass", "this is for something bigger" , "not sure why I went through this but know God has a plan" there are a million things we tell ourselves or promises we hide in our hearts from what scripture tells us, but they all a form of HOPE. We are holding on with patient expectations knowing God is in control of our lives. He has a watchful eye on us. We should be looking forward to that day where we will be in heaven. That should be our ultimate hope that this life here will be just what it is our life here. On earth, because our hope is for that day when all our hurts, pain, sorrows will be wiped away and we will be celebrating in his kingdom together.
My newest creation was designed for a beautiful cause which brings Hope to so many.
Meet miss Laura who is the one behind this great ministry 
she blogs here
 and has a shop here 
She has such a beautiful heart and would love for you to take some time to get to know her. 

See the hoop Elsie is modeling above. When I say modeling I mean bribing with tons of Starburst jellybeans to hold this piece and look at the camera without crying. Not only is she shy in person but camera shy as well. love her.
Laura is hosting a giveaway for this piece right now so jump on over to her blog to see details. Also note a very limited number will be made with 100% of the proceeds donated to this cause.
Not only will you be contributing to a remarkable cause but you will have a reminder of HOPE to display.
"Give to other people, and you will receive. You will be given much. It will be poured into your hands--more than you can hold. You will be given so much that it will spill into your lap. The way you give to other people is the way God will give to you." Luke 6:38
