tough days. We still don’t get all of it though. Love is just something that is. Another large factor in the shaping of the novel is faith. Faith is often confused with hope, though the two are both important, they are also both very different. Hope is an expectation. A desire for something to happen. Faith, however, is complete trust that something will happen. It’s not a wish upon a star. Is not a small child’s silent plea for a certain gift on their birthday. It’s something that will happen because you trust that it will so much. Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace all have had huge leaps of faith throughout the novel. They had to have faith in the three strange women. They had to have faith that they would find Meg’s father, and they had to have faith that something good would come of it all, that things would be different. Faith has played a big part in my life as well. If I hadn’t had faith in myself there are many things I couldn’t have accomplished. Faith is a silly little thing sometimes, but it’s good, like the Spring breeze that moves your hair to tickle your shoulders. Without faith, I couldn’t have even written this essay.
