hope & faith

hope & faith can be elusive enigmas, at least for me. then i see (or witness) and image such as this and everything becomes clear. for me the father's hand is the epitome of hope and the child faith. i can feel this father's yearning for his child to have a good life even though he knows unspeakable hardships exist and the child saying, "i have no idea what's going on but if you take the lead i'll follow."

"you remind me of the babe."
"what babe?"
"the babe with the power."
