... so we're just going to go ahead & say it out loud here, Lord --
that it's easy for our hearts to snag on things & to be torn &
for us to lose our hope. It's easy for us to have a hole in our heart

And You hold our hearts tonight, and whisper:
"Wait with hope. Hope now; hope always!" Ps.131:3 Christ is coming! Christmas is coming! And if Christ is coming -- *can anything overcome Him*? *Light is always stronger than darkness*!
