The first candle is lit on the advent wreath representing HOPE. No matter what denomination you believe in, HOPE is what will keep your spirit going when your body isn’t able.
HOPE is what we turn to when we enter a contest, go to an audition, wait for test results, or walk onto a plane. HOPE is the verb form of faith. Humans hoped for God to send us our saviour, and He did. We light the candle to open our eyes again to the HOPE of seeing God in our lives.
God, Universe, Higher Being – no matter how you imagine the ultimate source of light, clarity and love, we are all connected to this entity. My HOPE is that we can all see the light that shines in each of us – see it in ourselves and in every person that you meet.
Keep HOPE’s candle burning.
