To Extend,
To Reach Forward.

Hope is a desire of some good,
and at least a slight belief
of obtaining it.
Hope always
gives pleasure  
or joy.   
      ...But let us, who are of the day, be sober,
putting on the breastplate of faith and love;
and for a helmet, the hope of salvation...
For God hath not appointed us to wrath,
but to obtain salvation
by our Lord Jesus Christ.

I Thessalonians 5:8 and 9
