“Oh, that I might have my request, that God would grant what I hope for”- Job 6:8

The season of Advent has begun! The final four Sundays before Christmas is here making me realize how fast this year has gone by. An Advent wreath contains traditionally contains four candles: three purple and one pink. Each one has a different meaning. The first one that is lit is a purple candle representing hope.

Hope is a word that reflects many things related to faith. There is hope in knowing that one day everything will turn out right. There is hope because when Mary gave birth to Jesus in the manger He gave us hope for everlasting life. For there is hope because of His promise to us.
