Learning to Live , Again, On Purpose.

I pray each day…

I wake, each morning, to my day and thank God for the opportunities ahead. You see I pray each evening, in all supplication and thanksgiving for the day I was given and for the chance to do His will the next day.

I wish to share the Love of the Lord, each day, with someone(s), whose heart needs a jump start. To share, with an aching spirit, the proof of the will of God for their life. To reach out a hand, to one that needs a lift, or a push, to trust one more day.
I want, more time, each day to praise my Lord in song. To use the gift of music to dwell within the heart of my Father God. I desire to sit with my Creator, each day, and allow Him to enlighten me to my call, in His Word and Wisdom. I long for more time each day, to communicate with my Savior, in the Spirit and in Truth.
I want more people; man, woman and child, to know the hand of a Loving Father. To see the truth of the Crucifixion, to understand where they came from and what their inheritance is. I long for this hurting world to find the one and only true Savior.

I want them to understand that the concept ” You are your own Savior” is a pernicious lie. That the God of their ancestors is the only answer to the wound that has festered for the last several decades. I want more God in schools, in homes, in community, in life. I want more God in the churches.

I want everyone to know that it isn’t about a religion, that it is about a relationship with the one that created them.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
