  • 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.

    However, this year my husband surprised me by bringing the tree down from the attic the day after Thanksgiving while I was at work.

    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.

    This year we celebrated the 500th Anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.
