The concept of Hope was a thread woven within the fabric of our family’s holiday celebrations. Hattie Pettit, the mother of our family, had exemplified faith and hope throughout the years of war. We knew that she believed that hope was a powerful force that makes a better world and permits each of us to think, work and dream. Mother believed that hope and faith were symbolized in a variety of celebrations that involved decorating one’s home, gift giving, special foods, religious services and a focus on family and friends. With these beliefs, all of us children and in-laws were swept into the workforce of decorating, cooking, gift wrapping, and going to the grocery store.

Growing up my mother prayed with me and ever since then it has become a part of my daily routine/habit (performance pattern). Often times I pray in the morning, before I start my day, and in the evening before I go to sleep. I derive peace and a sense of calmness during this occupation.

This lyric is my favorite from this song because it explains what the church can do for someone and what effect The Lord and The Bible can do. Someone who does an endless amount of dreadful doings like drugs or have felonies that put them into crummy places like rehab or jail.
