Do you remember when you were a child and Christmas Day couldn't come fast enough?

December seemed like the longest month of the year as each day was filled with so much anticipation of what was about to happen!  Children still get excited for that special morning and the gifts they hope for.  There is nothing quite like the wide-eyed wonder of a boy or girl when they see the big gift under the tree with their name on it.  

As we age, that wonder seems to fade.  We realize that even the best presents aren't the things we really need in our lives.  What about a gift with real value; a gift of love, joy, and peace?  They can't fit into a box, but these are gifts that can change a life.  And what if you could find fresh hope this Christmas?  That would mean a lot more than another round of eggnog and the latest gadget on the market.    

Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace sound wonderful, but do you believe they are possibilities for you?  These gifts might seem really out of reach.  You feel all the hurt, the disappointments, and the struggles that you've dealt with throughout the year, but the story of Christmas is all about experiencing the unexpected.  

Ready for the unexpected?
