This Advent season I wish you hope.
The kind of hope that fills and replenishes doubt and worry.
I wish you faith.
A deeper faith as we prepare for a Child's birth in the deep dark of night.
The world covered in shadow and the light of His love piercing through a cover.
A warm light like a beacon, calling you.
I wish you joy.
Not just a smidgen of it, but a substantial amount of joy knowing that you are of value.
That a savior came to save you and give you life.
I wish you peace that surpasses the negativity and anxiety that the world seems to value as a norm.
Calming, slowed, and simple.
Content in the knowledge that you can rest in the midst of a commercial season that calls us to hurry.
Your heart is where peace starts, actions follow, and like a ripple in water affects those in your path.
Spreading, dispersing freely the gift of peace.
My hope this beautiful season is to embrace peace and to give my family and those around me the most gracious gifts of
Many blessings upon you this Advent season....
