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.

  1. It’s spring for real! Please tell me those are real flowers not plastic, but I am pretty sure that is a stuffed cat. I am planning to start walking this spring. My pastor buddie just had a stroke, thank God a mild one, but I have many reasons to start in on my weight loss and exercise. This week end was a bust, but I am going to start over!

  2. Those are my Spring Crocuses (spell check anyone!). I’m doing okay if you don’t count the cheese cakes. LOL! I am sorry your Pastor is ill, I will certainly keep in my prayers. By His stripes he is healed! AMEN! I will keep you there as well. I have walked my Buster every morning and I have been able to sleep lying down for the last few nights. In bible school we learned tonight…amazing how you learn even with scripture you’ve read over and again! That the healing is already done, as we know. But we must believe in our hearts and speak it with our mouths everyday. My obesity is a thing that must be healed inside and out…So I call it healed and I believe I have what my Father gives me! Blessings my friend…I believe the same for you…

    I have beautiful pictures of my crocuses in full bloom, I will put them up in the next couple of days. Oh and the cat is real. LOL…that is Baby Cat enjoying a sun beam immediately before she took the puppy for a run!

    Glad to hear from you…:) Blessings.
