1,000 Gifts

"The Light never comes how you expect it. It comes as the unlikely-straight into Bethlehem...and Christmas whispers that there is always hope. It doesn't matter how dark the dark is; a light can still dawn. God favors the darkest places so you can see His light the brightest.When you really believe in Christmas, you believe there is really hope for everyone."
