This week, we celebrate two very important holidays – Passover and Easter. These religious holidays are celebrations of hope and salvation – Passover commemorates God’s deliverance of the Jews from
and the birth of the Jewish people as a nation. And Easter celebrates the Resurrection of
Jesus Christ and the birth of Christianity. Egypt
Both religious holidays remind us that even in the most trying of circumstances we must always “Hope”.
This lovely verse about HOPE is by Father James Keller, Founder of The Christophers:
Hope opens doors where despair closes them.
Hope discovers what can be done instead of grumbling about what cannot.
Hope regards problems, small or large, as opportunities.
Hope looks for the good in people, instead of harping on the worst.
Hope cherishes no illusions, nor does it yield to cynicism.
Hope sets big goals and is not frustrated by repeated difficulties or setbacks.
Hope pushes ahead when it would be easier to quit.
Hope puts up with modest gains, realizing the “the longest journey starts with one step.”
Hope accepts misunderstandings as the price for serving the greater good of others.
Hope is a good loser because it has the divine assurance of final victory.
Hope draws its power from a deep trust in God and the basic goodness of human nature.
Hope “lights a candle” instead of “cursing the darkness.”
All of us at Beninati Associates wish you a Happy Passover and a Blessed Easter. May you always HOPE!
Our office will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 1st.
