There is a situation that I have experienced being hopeless about this summer.  I thought the answer was to resist hopelessness or to be hopeful.  But having that word persistence come this morning helps me to realize that hopelessness is the indication that I am not listening for/being in touch with and as the persistent presence that God is already being.  And as I do that listening, the hopelessness goes and also the need for hope feels to me to evaporate too ...somehow I am just more grounded about the issue with my feet on the ground so to speak (instead of feeling buried or overwhelmed by it and therefore hopeless...or trying to get on top of it by feeling hopeful) and my head not too far away as Raj likes to say.    So thank you for posting her today, it was helpful to me.
