This week while in the car, I heard a talk show on the radio. The speaker told how some folks want to wait until they have all of their light before stepping out. "It doesn't work that way," she said. As you step out and trust, you are presented with a shaft of light. Each time you do so, you get another shaft of light. And another. By sharing our light it is increased. We are shown to be trustworthy.
Yesterday as I was driving along, a song came on the radio. "Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you."
As you decorate your tree, may the lights be a reminder of the true meaning of Christmas.
