  • Hope for our soul's cold winter

    For the past few years, Christmas hasn’t felt merry.

    We’ve had some family struggles -- what family hasn’t at times? -- that have put a damper on our desire to celebrate. We didn’t even put up our Christmas tree the past two years.

    He sent me a photo, which flipped a switch in my head. It hit a “hope” spot inside me, and I couldn’t wait to decorate it.

  • The advent of Immanuel

    During the entire time I was pregnant with my youngest daughter nearly 35 years ago, my husband was also unemployed.

    Back then, I carefully budgeted every cracker, every bowl of Cheerios, every ounce of milk, with absolutely no wiggle room.

    One day after a trip to the market I grabbed one too many grocery bags out of the car to bring inside to our apartment and a plastic gallon jug of milk dropped and splattered all over the sidewalk.

    Despite the adage, “Don’t cry over spilled milk,” I cried.
