Hope deferred makes the heart sick.


Yes, I know, but I need to know if YOU all know and no googling!


eta: I used it and I'm getting people asking me what it means.


Like calling a character Lot's wife and having the readers scratch their heads. grumble.

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs something:something.


It's a good reminder to put my hope and trust in the Lord, who always has my best interest at heart, and not in fallible man and temporal earthly things. If I long for what is Godly, I will not be disappointed!
