There was a pause in the conversation, and my friend—normally a very buoyant woman—said, “We could sure use some hope right now.” We sure could.
Hope is one of the Three Great Treasures of the human heart: “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love” (1 Cor ).
“We could sure use some hope right now.” I was chatting with a friend last week about the things going on in our lives and in the world, when she said this.
And hope is the cornerstone; the fate of the other two depend upon hope’s resilience: ...
we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people —the faith and love that spring from hope... Without hope faith is just a doctrine gathering dust on our shelves.
The insides of the double albums had cartoons of the things going on in the the stories.
We had three such albums that I remember: A Midsummer Night's Dream (music by Mendelssohn), Sleeping Beauty (music by Tchaikovsky), and Aladdin ( I'm certain that we had at least one more, but it is escaping me at the moment.
When I was a kid, we still had my mother's 78 rpm record player and her collections of childrens' albums from her own childhood in the 1950s.
There were a lot of old 10-inch records with it, but there were a few two-record sets that made particular impressions on me.
These two-record albums had fairy tales, acted out by several actors and a narrator, and they were set to pieces of classical music.
Mostly, the actors sang along to the music, with original lyrics.
This label was active from 1950 - 1957 and their releases included Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
I haven't heard them myself so I can't confirm if the recordings match your description.
