That reminds me of the Israelites who waited 2000 years for the Christ child to be born. My thought: Lord, give us grace to be faithful and walk close to you keeping your word in our hearts and minds.
My dad was the one who always believed in me. I wasn’t perfect in his eyes but I was his babygirl. He always knew when I was hurting or afraid. I never had to tell him. I sure could use his courage right now.
