For most of us, Christmas is a joyful and happy time of year, when we look forward to spending quality time with family and friends, and giving and reciving Christmas presents and cards. Sadly though, this isn’t the kind of Christmas everyone experiences.

There are many who have never had a Christmas where they’ve been surrounded by family, friends and presents. For many Christmas is just like every other day of the year, lonely, cold and depressing.

It’s our job as Christians to try to not only spread the real message of Christmas to those who don’t know it or believe it, but also to help make Christmas a sprecial and memorable time of year for others.

It’s my hpe this Christmas that not only will many other come to believe in the true message of Christmas, but that many others will be able to experience the wonder and hope inspired by the Christmas season in the knowledge that this season is all about the love of God.

The Christmas Hope by Newsong

Her wish this Christmas
Was that Christmas would just pass her by
Nothing could reach her
Or answer her questions why
She feels so alone
And she wonders if all hope is gone
Chorus
Hope is a candle
A light in the window
Showing the way for
A heart to come home
Hope is a Savior
Who was born in the manger
Sent down from Heaven
To rescue our hearts
Our Christmas hope
She never imagined
That for her there was hope to find
But isn’t it amazing
How God brings a heart back to life
She’s smiling now she’s finding out
What Christmas hope is all about
Chorus
Hope is a present
A gift freely given
To all who receive
And open their hearts
Hope is a promise
For a better tomorrow
In a world filled with sorrow
We always have hope
Our Christmas hope
Our Christmas hope
