Advent 21


The shortest day.

When you and your family have hit the wall of extreme tiredness.

Incredibles 2. Masterchef. Library. Counting Christmas lights on the way home from the Library.

Weary bones.

Grateful of reminders that into the deepest dark the light dawned. We who remain in the darkness this world often offer wait, watch and long for the final dawn. Light will come.

“The people walking in darkness
    have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
    a light has dawned.
You have enlarged the nation
    and increased their joy;” Isaiah 9

The Light shines on in the [c]darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it].” John 1

“You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.” Psalm 18

“because of the tender mercy of our God,
    by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven
79 to shine on those living in darkness
    and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the path of peace.” Luke 1
