The light has been dazzling this year. Every day I'm out, I see something different on the horizon. The sharp angles of the sun cast an incredibly magical hue and while it doesn't last for long, I'm thankful that I've been out during the few hours it's happening. I continue to realize how important it is to drink in the sunshine. My mood has been greatly helped by even the small glimpses of daylight we're getting. During the times when rain and clouds dominate, when the sun doesn't bother to break through the landscape and it feels like daytime never came, it is really tough. But this year, my walk through this Advent season has been enhanced by my beautiful walks in the woods with my dog.
I feel the presence of God doing something special as I delight in his marvelous creation. The small but brilliant light of the midday sun draws me nearer to light that is Christ that I'm seeking to walk towards each day. We are about halfway through our Advent journey. I hope yours is marked by the light that truly sustains.
