You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. Matthew 5:14
If you an early riser, you are well aware that sunrises this time of year happen at about 7:15 am and sunsets around 4:40 pm – that’s a short amount of light. When I wrote this devotion in November, meteorologist Paul Douglas reminded us in his morning forecast, “On December 22, daylight hours will slowly begin to increase. It’s a small glimmer of hope." Amid Advent, we look forward to the celebration of the birth of Jesus. St. John reminds us in John 8:12, of the word spoken, “I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
I LOVE the lights of Advent and Christmas, be it candles, electric lights, or the light shinning from the happy faces of loved ones; all are reflections of God’s love for us.
