Advent is a season filled with Hope. Children hope for snow days and Christmas gifts. Parents hope for snow plows to keep the schools open, and for Christmas bonuses, and everyone hopes for peace.  In this season I invite you to slow down just long enough to Ponder CHRISTmas this year. Countdown the days with me as we wait for the coming of our hope, as the babe of Bethlehem, the promised Messiah! As Jeremiah reminds us “the days are coming…” when all the good promises of God will find their fulfillment in our life.

My prayer for you this HOLYday season is that you find wonder and amazement in the promises of God, the Hope of God in your life.

WHAT is the one thing you hope for this season more than anything else?
