This weekend we’ll be unearthing our boxes of Christmas decorations – having managed to get each room in the house looking like home and already enjoying being lived in,
I love candles – and at Christmas time get the opportunity to put so many around the place – they always remind me of the hope of this season – and make me so grateful for my faith in the One Who came to bring that hope. That flame of hope – as this lovely quote says – should never go out from my life – and with hope I can have a life – filled with peace – faith and love.
No matter what has happened in my life – the difficulties I have faced – the heartache – especially during these past months – I lean on Him – and remember that the reason He came – allowed Himself to be born here on earth those many years ago – was for my sake – as He said – He came to bring good news – to heal the broken hearted and to bring hope and freedom – declaring His favor -and as this season begins I give Him my thanks.
So – at the beginning of this season – I look forward with hope – and would love to say this prayer that I came across for you – “May God Who lights up the stars amaze you with the beauty of life – May God Who warms you in the hearth encircle you with belonging – May God Who stills you with a single candle flame meet you on your wildest night – May the dazzling brightness of God radiate always in your countenance – shine in your body – illuminate your mind – burn in your spirit – as you journey through the changing lights of life. “
Blessings – Lois
