Learning to Live , Again, On Purpose.

Mega Memory Month Back by Popular Demand! July 2009



I found Mega Memory Month a great way to stay connected with God and on WordPress. So I return (if a bit late 😉 ) to the challenge once again. I’d like to thank Ann Kroeker for hosting the challenge and I invite my friend’s to join.  Click the link above and check how to join us!

It’s amazing!


As for Hopeannfaith I will be memorizing …

Isaian 55

Holman Christian Standard Bible

Come to the Lord

1 “Come, everyone who is thirsty, (A)
    come to the waters;
    and you without money,
    come, buy, and eat!
    Come, buy wine and milk
    without money and without cost!

    2 Why do you spend money on what is not food,
    and your wages on what does not satisfy?
    Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
    and you will enjoy the choicest of foods. [a]

    3 Pay attention and come to Me;
    listen, so that you will live.
    I will make an everlasting covenant with you, (B)
    the promises assured to David. (C)

    4 Since I have made him a witness to the peoples, (D)
    a leader and commander for the peoples, (E)

    5 so you will summon a nation you do not know, (F)
    and nations who do not know you will run to you. (G)
    For the LORD your God,
    even the Holy One of Israel, (H)
    has glorified you.” (I)

    6 Seek the LORD while He may be found;
    call to Him while He is near. (J)

    7 Let the wicked one abandon his way,
    and the sinful one his thoughts; (K)
    let him return to the LORD,
    so He may have compassion on him,
    and to our God, for He will freely forgive. (L)

    8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
    and your ways are not My ways.”
          [This is] the LORD‘s declaration.

    9 “For as heaven is higher than earth, (M)
    so My ways are higher than your ways,
    and My thoughts than your thoughts.

    10 For just as rain and snow fall from heaven,
    and do not return there
    without saturating the earth,
    and making it germinate and sprout,
    and providing seed to sow
    and food to eat, (N)

    11 so My word that comes from My mouth
    will not return to Me empty,
    but it will accomplish what I please,
    and will prosper in what I send it [to do].” (O)

    12 You will indeed go out with joy
    and be peacefully guided;
    the mountains and the hills will break into singing before you,
    and all the trees of the field will clap [their] hands. (P)

    13 Instead of the thornbush, a cypress will come up,
    and instead of the brier, a myrtle will come up; (Q)
    it will make a name for the LORD (R)
    as an everlasting sign that will not be destroyed.

Author: Hopeannfaith

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.
