Bookends for Love
Laurie Buchanan has an incredible ability to sum up rich and important concepts into manageable bit size pieces. “Bookends for Love” is a gem to take into the new year; to roll around in your heart and use as a guiding light.
What is your hope for the coming year? Do you have faith in your dream(s)? Or is some fear holding you back? In all things, love yourself. It is “a powerful ally in any situation”. DS

I recently shared with my friend Sandi that I view faith and hope as bookends—standing sentinel—on each side of love. In my experience:
Faith has a track record — it’s associated with something (person, place, thing, event, or opportunity) that we have confidence in; something we have reason to believe will come through for us.
Hope is brand new — somewhat like 2014, it hasn’t established a track record yet; it’s unfamiliar. Having no previous experience with it, we hope everything is going to turn out all right.
