Hold onto hope

May you have the gladness of Christmas which is hope;
The spirit of Christmas which is peace;
The heart of Christmas which is love.
~Ada V. Hendricks

So many people I know are struggling this year,  I want to encourage you to alway hold onto hope.  Rest in the assurance that Christ came to be our hope, our only hope.  Have comfort and joy,  He has already overcome the world.🕯

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
John 16;33

You are so loved!

This is a oil painting of my granddaughter, the sketch started out like her but I think it looks like Mary. :)

Christmas gift suggestions: 
To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.

At Christmas play and make good cheer,
For Christmas comes but once a year

Hold on to hope!

An old hymn 🎝

Have a peaceful and joyful Christmas! 

All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:  “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”
 (which means “God with us”).

You, Lord keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light”.
 Psalm 18:28
