Day 26 - Light of the Season

I just love all the lights of Christmas!  Don't you?

The twinkle of the lights on the Christmas trees.....

The soft glow from candles burning....

The multi-colored outdoor lights and displays seen as we drive through town.....

Even the warmth of lamplight in a room on a gray afternoon or cold, dark evening.....

Yes, I love the lights at Christmas time!  But, even more than the holiday lights, I love the symbolism which they hold. 

"There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man." - John 1:9 

"I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me 
will not remain in darkness." - John 12.46

The lights of the season represent our belief in the birth of One who brought Light and Life to the world.  Each time you admire the twinkle of the lights on the tree, or focus on the flame of the candle, remember the reason for the lights. 

"Lord, thank you for being a beacon in the night, drawing me near to your light and love."

Only a few more days to go until Christmas!  Try with me - not to get too caught up in the busy-ness to remember the real reason for the season!

Merry Christmas!!!
