Advent is a season of hope which takes my faith to new heights each year as I celebrate Christ’s birth and anticipate His second coming. Life is filled with ups and downs, but hope brings a beautiful place of balance. I wrote this poem years ago, but it still resonates with my heart. I look forward to all God has in store, and that is what hope is all about.
Hope is the spark that lingers
Long after the fire seems lost.
He remains to remind us
To go on, He paid the cost.
We are prone to forget Him
Until nothing else remains,
But He sits waiting patiently
To ease our heartaches and pains.
