The message of Christmas is one of deep and abiding joy! It is a message filled with the assurance that no matter how difficult the journey may seem; no matter how hopeless the situation may feel; no matter how long and dark the night may be, joy will eventually come. That is the promise of God: Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes with the morning.(Psalm 30:5b).
