    Hopefully-ness — is that the love-ness or the happy-ness?

    Justin~ "Hopefully" –I think people around me were saying it, and then I was always feeling it and holding out, and then I just got tired.

    So, maybe, it's when we see that something's going no where that we can be free. Like, you don't sing a song to get to the last note…

    Just trying to be sitting in the Mercy seat.

  7. Justin says:

    Ahh — like "hopefully" we'll have heaven to be together in the future — "out-there" instead right here — ??

  8. JoanaSmith says:

    Yeah–I think 'time' is the issue here…. Just feeling my way through it 😉
