Driving home last night from my mom’s with our kids, I noticed one single star shining brightly in the middle of the huge dark sky. I took many turns but that light stayed in its place, appearing to guide us home.
Later in the wee hours of the morning I was up caring for our baby. I accidentally left a light on the living room. Closed our bedroom door, turned the lights off, but there, in the midst of the dark again, light pierced through the cracks around our bedroom door. Light illuminated the door frame. There, in the dark, yet another reminder that the smallest amount of light will overtake the darkness, lead us to doors that can be opened, and though small, that light has the power to keep our sleepy hearts awake.
Light in the dark… That is what Christmas is about. Jesus bringing hope… One small babe… One small light… With the power to overcome the dark and keep our sleepy hearts awake.
May a light shine in our hearts and wake us up once again to the beauty of Christmas. Because a light came, and lit up the darkness. He guides us home, and is always with us. He gives perfect gifts of peace and joy, salvation and unending love.
Beautiful light, shine bright and let us light up the darkness as his light shines in our hearts.
