Every night we go to bed without any guarantee that we will wake up in the morning but we set our alarm clocks anyway to wake us up. That is hope.

When you throw a baby up in the air they laugh because they know you will catch them. That is trust.

We plan to do things tomorrow, next week, in spite of zero knowledge of the future. That is confidence.

Once there was a village that had endured years of drought. The villagers decided they would all come together and pray for rain. On the day of the prayer only one little boy brought an umbrella. That is faith.

We see that there is pain and suffering in the world but still we have children and bring them up to care for each other. That is love.

An old lady has a tshirt and on it is the slogan. I’m not 80 years old. I am sweet 16 with 64 years experience. That is attitude.

Hope. Trust. Faith. Love. Attitude. Confidence.
We pray that as we begin a new week together that these traits abound in your life this week. Have hope that this day will be a good one. Trust in yourself that you can achieve your best. Have faith that God is with you every step of the way. Show love to others when you can. Begin this day with the right attitude and you’ll go far and even if you are not feeling all that confident you could always just fake it and hope for the best.
