At least...I have hope of spring! Here is the reason for my hope!
Of course, my REAL hope is not for earthly things like good weather! My REAL hope is in Christ my Savior!
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,
while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
