I had no reason to hope.
I had several very large fibroid tumors in my uterus and my hormones were all over the map. We’d just lost a precious little one before we even got a chance to spread the blessed news. And I was 44 years old. I was too old.
There was no earthly reason to hope.
But I named her Hope anyways.
I didn’t realize it, but it was the first day of Advent—the Sunday of hope. With sleep still lingering in my swollen eyes, I whispered to my husband, “I want to name her Hope.” When it finally dawned on me what day it was, my heart skipped a beat.
Surely, God prompted me to name her Hope on Hope Sunday! Surely, He had a plan in all this pain.
That day, a seed of hope was planted in my soul.
