Winter Darkness Lit With Hope

with 4 comments

It isn’t about religion, it’s about bringing light and hope in the darkness of winter.

The house is decorated for Christmas. We have put up enough of our traditional Christmas decorations to add a bit of that “light” felling that we associate with the years when our children were small and filled with the magical wonder of Christmas. This Christmas is different from the last Christmas we were in our home here in Canada as we will not be gifted with any of our children coming “home” for Christmas. We had thought not to put up decorations but soon tossed that idea out as there is more to the lights and the decorations than family. The lights and decorations are a statement to the darkness and cold of winter that we are alive. The lights and decorations are our protest against the deep sleep. And that is enough of a reason to welcome another Christmas season in our home.
