Hope

 

Everyone has a time and place,

And it all happens just too fast;

So don’t forget to look them in the face,

And hope that moment lasts. 

 

When they leave, you must understand,

 All our times are in God’s hand;

For now we still have hope,

For now there’s still a plan.

 

There will be times you have sorrow,

But God will keep you strong;

Trust in Him, you’ll be fine tomorrow,

And your pain won’t last long. 

 

When they leave, you must understand,

All our times are in God’s hand;

For now we still have hope,

For now there’s still a plan. 

 

Just know it’s okay,

That God is full of love;

Please just have faith,

And trust they’re in heaven above. 

 

Hannah Burns, an 11-year old from Orange Park, shares her poem, Hope. It expresses her heartfelt thoughts to those who’ve lost loved ones in the tragic events that have recently befallen our country, and also serves as a reminder to all of us that we ought to cherish and treasure our times together. Her sentiments take shape in the form of a poem, while her inspiration takes its shape from the Holy Scriptures. This piece brings to mind the Savior’s words found in Matthew 10:29-31, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
