Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
A Blessed and Joyous Christmas Season to you
and your family!
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it...” What is light to world? Without light we stumble physically; without the light of Christ we stumble spiritually. From plants that do not grow without sunshine, we know that light gives life; the light of Christ gives our spirits life. Within white light are all the colours of the spectrum; within Christ all the beauties and ‘colours’ of life become apparent. A small ray of light in a dark room brings much comfort; even a brief prayer that allows me to hold the hand of Jesus brings courage as well as comfort. The sun is shining 24/7 on planet earth; the light of Christ’s grace and truth is available 24/7, 365 days of each year, for millennia. Come, Holy Spirit of Jesus, and be light for my life.
Lethe heavens be glad and earth rejoice; let the sear roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it. Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy! (Psalm 96 )
God of God, Light of Light,
Lo, he comes forth from the Virgin’s womb.
Very God, begotten not created.
O Come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
John F. Wade, Adeste Fideles
