"Because of God's tender mercy,
the morning light from heaven is
about to break on us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness,
and in the shadow of death,
and to guide us
to the path of peace."
Thanking and praising God - for the Gift of Jesus, the bright light from heaven, coming down to us. Rescuing us from darkness, and guiding us to peace. Zechariah was filled with anticipation at the time of the birth of his son, John, as they looked to the soon coming of this Light from heaven.
And now, over two thousand years later, we celebrate His coming as a babe, and we walk in this Light and Peace that He came to bring.
It has been a very busy few weeks for me, as I have been making preparations for our wonderful Family Christmas - 23 of us together here in our home tomorrow, with the first ones arriving tonight. And as mom, and grama - always needing to depend on Him, our Light, and our source of Love, and of Peace.
