These winter days are short and the skies are gray and overcast until the premature dusk chases the birds away. All very gloomy until we contemplate that the light is never far away: it lies in the serene beauty of the Advent candle. Christ is born, Alleluia!

:-D. Lovely and inspiring thoughts, truth and poetry Ciexyz. Thank you for the reminder.

I often fly into NW cities that are drearily overcast. You reminded me of how before descending there is often blues skies and sunshine. It is only the clouds that shield its beam. They are not permanent no matter how long and how intense the fall and winter. You reminded me. Glad God gave us these candles to tide us over and bring it to us through the winter skies. :-D Alleluia!
