What brings you hope?

The last week and a half has been an emotional roller-coaster for me. Fortunately, my week has been much better than the last. As I was sitting here this morning, I was thinking to myself about things in my life that bring me comfort and hope in hard times. Here is a short list.

  • Friends
  • Rachel
  • A great song or CD
  • Extended time with God
  • Laughing at myself or at a great joke or story. This works the best when it's the kind of laughing that makes you hurt.
  • Encouraging words or seeing the fruits of your labors (especially in ministry)
  • Sleep
  • Video Games (winning in video games...loosing makes things worse ;)
  • Getting outside and being active

So what about you? What brings hope and comfort to you when you are down?
