I took the above photo while traveling on the Denali Dream Drive to visit the HGTV Dream Home last December. During the trip, I was feeling some kind of way about going into my second holiday season as a widow. I needed some time and space to think. The trip opportunity came at the perfect time for me, from my friends over at General Motors (GM). I remember stepping outside of the HGTV dream home and looking over the beautiful land that surrounded us. I glanced at the tall and beautiful trees, homes, water and mountains; along with the beautiful GMC trucks made that moment so beautiful and memorable.

While standing there, I began to think about my life; my purpose and how the past 2 years had felt like I was in land unreal, yet I was enduring because God had given me hope, even in the midst of what I had gone through. At that moment, I looked up into the sky and in the midst of the trees, I saw the most beautiful spot of sunlight shining through. It was so bright that I could hardly look at it directly. Within that moment, God spoke to my heart and said, "I am your ray of hope'! It was a powerful moment of release and relief to experience and I will never forget it. What has been your "Ray of Hope" during challenging times? Let me know by sharing it here, and then share this blog with someone you know that may need a "Ray of Hope" to get them through the day.
