Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), in-person classes at the Stroke Comeback Center (in Vienna and Rockville) are suspended until further notice. However, our Virtual Programs are thriving! Check out our virtual programs under our "Programs" tab.
Tree of Life – Hope
“Hope deferred makes the heart sick. But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life”.
A Moment of Hope
In “A Moment of Hope”, think about the seeds that you planted in the ground and decide if it’s time to reap the love of grace and favor you have sowed.
Remember the secret to good things in life is understanding that there is peace in the midst of every storm.
A Movement of Hope
While you are in the eye of a pandemic, a grief you have never seen or experienced before, Mother Nature politely asks you to have hope. Holding the world gently in her hands, Mother Nature requests that you reset your courage button and restore to the world that hope is not in vain.
While restoring your hope, observe how the universe is changing and with this change, fear is not an option, but faith is.
On the journey of restoring your hope, see the universe with new eyes; see the garment of true love, dancing like the flowers that bloom after a long night of summer rain.
Have a Fresh Drink of Water
Stand still to see the light in your hope; and remember justice from the light arrives from the darkness. Allow hope to come into your heart, reclaim your faith and see the wonder of it all.
Adjusting to the New Normal of Hope
As we began to understand that the old normal is gone and the new normal is here to stay, you will find that brilliant twinkle in your hope. On your journey, keep on believing until you see the sparkle that rises up, a sparkle that has unchained your shackles and set you free to see we are all inter-related. Find the courage to see that “all men and women are created equal.”
And finally, as you listen during your quiet time, trying to hold on to hope, hope of adjusting to your “new normal,” reintroduce yourself to the light of the sun that shines down so brightly; and, wait for the ‘higher power’ to make its move.
“Father I am available to You
Father use me to show someone the way
And enable me to stay
My storage is empty and I am available to You”
