“Our relationship of all kind are like sand held in your hand. Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. The minute you close your hand and squeeze lightly to hold on, the sand trickles through your fingers.

Once all the decided to pray for rain, on the day of prayer all people agreed and one boy came with an umbrella. That’s faith.
Example of the feeling of a one year old baby. When you throw him in the air, he laughs because he knows you will catch him. That’s trust.
Every night we go to bed, we have no assurance to wake up alive the next morning but still we set an alarm for tomorrow. That’s hope.
