Olive tree in the Garden of Gethsemane, perhaps witnessing the tears of the Messiah the night He sweated drops of blood and cried out to the Lord, Luke 22:44. Yet, there’s the hope of the tree of life.
We are approaching a season that can be filled with great joy. The season can be a refocusing upon what is important.
The season can also be a time of great busyness as we get caught up in the shopping, cooking, partying, and “shoulds” of expectations.
For some, the season can be a time of remorse as we see the happiness of others and feel that we are not as fortunate as others.
