Advent Snowglobes (Day 8)
Advent is about hope. Hope may be the most spoken word in churches every Sunday in December! Mom gave me this snowglobe (more like a confetti-globe) in 2002. It's the Ballpark in Arlington, home of the Texas Rangers. Of course, it plays, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." The Rangers were close to winning it all in 2010 and 2011, and they had a great year in 2015. Every Spring, every team begins training for the new season, and hope is a common theme. I'm fairly sure God doesn't care which team wins, but if God has a favorite sport, it has to be baseball, right? "I am the Lord, and I do not change; and you, children of Jacob, have not perished" (Malachi 3:6). In other words, there is always... you guessed it: hope. What do you hope for?
