When life disappoints you and expectations go unmet, what can you do? Where do you…
I just turned in my manuscript for Discovering Joy in Philippians, and this verse captures how I feel about you:
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. … It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart … (Phil 1:3-5, 7)
I just wanted to stop by your world to share a few things to make your holiday “Merry and Bright” so you can hold tight to HOPE:
