“The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone.” Isaiah 9:2

It’s here. Advent. The Season of Arrival. The Coming of How It Was Supposed To Be.

It was relief that I felt when I woke this morning because I need this. I get all just so off and crazy — these five candles and the story they tell reminds me that it’s all bigger than me. Bigger than me in that 99% of my main concerns (deadlines, dinner menu, which shoes to wear) probably don’t matter too-too much. And bigger than me in that even though I am a Big Mess some days, I am loved by and in the care of Someone Bigger.

These are the Days of Light.
