There are a lot of emotions and feelings that are directly related to the Christmas season; excitement, fun, anticipation, and comfort, just to name a few!  However, one can't deny that Christmas also brings up difficult feelings as well...loss, hurt, loneliness, and regret.  Whether or not these emotions describe you, it is probably the reality of people you know.
With the wide array of descriptions and feelings connected with Christmas, there is one word that is strikingly absent when we talk about Christmas.  It's the word hope.  More then anything, Christmas tells us that God keeps his promises and when all seems lost--God is faithful.  Christmas gives us hope because our Father in Heaven keeps his promises!
