Hope Rocks Week 2

Hope Rocks has literally taken off around the world! I'm getting emails and pictures from Scotland, Hawaii, Australia. Wow! Hope is a flame that cannot be put out. Above and below are pictures of where I placed a couple of my Hope Rocks. This bright purple bench was begging me to lay some Hope on it. I obliged. Happily!

The window below I found in an alley
also begged for a Hope Rock
to brighten up someone's day
who walks down the alley
and finds it.

Hope Rock Stars
Sandy Coleman, artist from Creations by Coleman found a clever way to bury Hope so it would find its way back to her just in the nick of time. She writes of how we use the word hope in every day ways, and how hope can be a prayer and an answer at the same time.

Leisanne from LeisanneArt wrote a powerful story about overcoming the fear to love again and shared how Hope had been restored to her when she least expected it to. Her Hope Rocks are angelic masterpieces and I know they will appear as angels to those who find them.

Vicki, from Nolly Posh Dreaming, spreads Hope while spending time receiving chemotherapy, and inspiring other people sharing the journey with her to hold Hope close to their hearts. Go sit for awhile, and read her posts, and listen to the music she plays while you read. You'll leave brimming over with Hope. Nolly Posh was my first follower here on my blog other than family. She gave me so much HOPE that I kept on writing this blog. Now look. There are 520 people following me and 540 regular subscribers. Hope Rocks the entire Universe.

Pamela Barrett, author of 'Tales of the Titmouse' and the blog Sister Gilby's Sayings also participated in Hope Rocks and shares a powerful post titled, 'Hope Rocks: Lessons In Letting Go.

The amazing people that painted these Hope Rocks could be the new Hope Rocks poster children, and adults. The faces and pure joy that oozes from each participant will inspire each and everyone of you. If these enthusiastic Hope Rock Stars don't inspire you to participate, we will need to check your pulse. Seriously, these guys ROCK!

Thank you, Stacy Fisher and her Taekwondo students
at Fisher's CTA Black Belt Academy

    Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune without the words,
    And never stops at all...emily Dickenson

  7. I left some Hope Rocks in Jamaica and I got a little hope returned back to me. Goin' Up ! Terah
