Hope's Balancing Act

Sometimes life is like a balancing act between the good things and the bad that happen in our lives. We are challenged to remain hopeful when it seems that Murphy’s Law has tipped the scales of justice to the bad side. It is at these times when we need hope the most. We need to have a bright hope that there is more good to be found than bad and that if we did not experience anything disappointing, difficult or unpleasant we would never have on the other side the experience to know the difference when life is going smoothly and all seems good. The forces of nature or the universe are not out to get us when things don’t go as planned. It is these experiences that let us realize the fullness of hope and happiness.
