The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light.
For those who lived in a land of deep shadows-
light! sunbursts of light!
For a child has been born– for us!
the gift of a son–for us!
I was a little girl who always heard bumps in the night. I was convinced, without a doubt, that there were monsters under my bed and in my closet. Nightlights are my friend!
The darkness of loneliness can’t be dispelled with a tiny, on and off, nightlight. Loneliness soaks to the bone. Like bitter cold to the body, it creates an ache and numbness in the soul that feels like it will never go away.
Christ-mas is about Light. The Light that came at an appointed time in eternity to illumine the darkness of forever hopelessness with unending Light.
