But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
Christmas lights may be removed from tree boughs and stored until next year. But, the Advent lights of Christmas–Hope, Peace, Joy, Love fueled by Faith–may remain within our hearts throughout the days ahead. May these verses illuminate 2014’s journey.
