It’s hard not to move into Advent without thinking about Hope.  When you think about it everything about our beliefs as Christian has Hope embedded somewhere.  I picked up a definition awhile back that I claimed as my own.  I don’t know where I heard it to give credit but I believe it is accurate.

Hope is:  “A desire accompanied by an expectation.”

Christianity is steeped in expectation.  Even from before Christianity was called Christianity there was an expectation for One to come and bring Peace to all people, a Savior…and the expectation continues, not for a Savior but for the time when it will be on earth as it is in heaven.
