Sometimes there are days when it feels like the darkness is winning.
Sometimes it's when there are a lot of big and terrible things going on all around.
Today it was the multitude of small things.
So many small hurtful and dark things on this, the first day of Advent.
But I am reminded that the Light has come to drive out darkness.
I will look for the tiny flames of light that flicker in the darkness as it has passed from person to person as Advent gains momentum. Until the day of His arrival, the coming of The King of Light.
"Because of God's tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death.,and to guide us to the path of peace." Luke 1:78-79
