Magical Moment 301, "The Light of December"

I adore the bright, promising sunshine of spring. I love to soak in the rays as they nourish the trees, awakening from their winter’s nap. I love the colorful light of fireworks in the summer that illuminate an entire black sky for one night. And in the fall, I am comforted by the gentle autumn glow that permeates the atmosphere, laying a hush over the earth as the leaves slowly fall towards it.

But there is nothing like the sparkling, endless lights of December that cover the streets, homes, and buildings in celebration of Christmas. As I prepare for the season, the hustle and bustle, shopping, decorating, and cooking, may I not be blinded by the glowing, ornate, glitz of the season, but keep focus on the One True Light.

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” -John 8:12
