Christmas Sunday is by far my favorite Sunday of the year. Like most things, it looked a little different this year, but I loved it all the same. There was no choir singing musical numbers. Instead, families sang musical numbers, there were soloists and several piano arrangements.

It was simple and beautiful and it touched me deep within my heart. More so than anything – it offered sweet hope. Christmas is magical in so many ways, but listening to the music on Sunday I was reminded that Christmas is hope. Jesus Christ is hope.
