As the daylight hours slip away so quickly from me in this Autumn to Winter seasonal shift, I am once more caught by surprise...both protesting and embracing the change.
This year I am celebrating six weeks of Advent instead of the four I have in the past...longer to focus on celebrating the coming of Christ, the Light of the world:
longer to notice the changes of light around me, the glow of sunlight on the new coat of snow on Mt. Hood,
longer to enjoy the warmth of candlelight and Christmas tree lights and my funny little electric fireplace in the hearth,
longer to appreciate the little OttLite on the arm of my chair while I stitch on this and that,
longer to appreciate the light of love in the eyes of my family members...
I am enjoying the light around me.
Are you enjoying the light around you?
