“My hope is in the Lord,” says the hymn, and most Christians know that is exactly right. However, even Christians sometimes need a reminder that hope does come from the Lord and that He cares about each person.
It is not unusual for many people to begin their daily routine with a cup of coffee or tea. It is equally common for people who commute or travel to carry with them a water bottle. While, of course, any coffee cup or water bottle will serve the purpose, drinking one’s beverage of choice out of a container emblazoned with a message of affirmation or hope can be a great way to inject positivity into a day that might otherwise be less so.
There are gift sets that are great for certain occasions and some that can be used for any occasion, but individual mugs and water bottles can be used as gifts just as easily for any event or reason! These selections would be excellent gifts for yourself or a friend.
