During this time of year as we head into a season of Holidays (Holy Days), we still have a lot to be thankful for. Even though there is still a lot of tragedy in the world with terrorism, the attacks against the Eastern Christians and many natural disasters. We are entering into a season of hope and expectation. It is that hope that keeps us going: hope for that new job, that new relationship, that new child, that new home, that new trip. Whatever it may be, keep the hope alive. Remember: those who have hope live better and longer lives because they have something to strive toward. Jesus gave us hope in the Resurrection, after all He is the first born of the dead. His life was not easy, nor will ours be. But with trust in God, they say “all things are possible.” Believe it: hope.
