2013.08.25 Life Wisdom—Mundanely Called Coping, Spiritually Called Hoping

Love fiercely with all your might;
have faith in your love even when it is clumsy or grows faint;
hope when there is no reason to hope—no matter what. . .for
hope is neither wistful nor wishful, but is
clear-hearted and mindful
partaking of the Divine.

I write this in gratitude for the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who is still dreaming hope into souls black and white,
 male and female,
   child and adult,
    parent and child,
     able and disabled,
      employed and unemployed
        young and old,
         gay and straight,
          rich and poor—for better for worse.
