I almost wish we could/ would carry a string to be reminded hope is within our grasp, regardless of the depth of despair. Our great gift to one another is, after all, to be approachable. To be there when needed is the lifeline. We simply cannot go on without the God spirit present in another person. A thread of hope is indeed very powerful. I wish all who need it can be rescued by a caring soul; it is the single most important offering to one immersed in abandonment.
