Hope Tacked to the Wall

For a little over two years these dish towels were tacked up on the wall of the guest room at Kevin and Kayla's house.  The mustard and gray were going to be the colors for their  nursery.  Month after month when no baby came, the hope never came down.  
I felt relief when I would take my suitcase into the room and see them still hanging there.  No matter how discouraged they became, there was still a little bit of hope.

There were days when the hope seemed almost gone.  
The towels never came down.

Let Your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we 
HOPE  in You.
Psalms 33:22

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who 
HOPE in His steadfast love.
Psalm 33:18

Oh that I might have my request, and that God would 
fulfill my HOPE.
Job 6:8

And you will feel secure, because there is HOPE; you will look around and take your rest in security.
Job 11:18

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me?  HOPE in God; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation.
Psalms 42:5

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my 
HOPE is from Him.
Psalms 62:5

For You, O Lord, are my HOPE, my trust, O Lord, from my youth.
Psalms 71:5

But I will HOPE continually and will praise You yet more and more.
Psalms 71:14

You are my hiding place and my shield; I HOPE in Your Word.
Psalms 119:114

Blessed is she whose help is the God of Jacob, whose HOPE is in the 
Lord her God.
Psalms 146:5
