During these months of early sunsets, short days and long dark afternoon and nights – we look for a light to guide us.
This past weekend, we drove into the Rocky Mountains for a family vacation. We have never skied over Christmas break, usually we head for the mountains from Illinois during the spring. It felt different immediately. The days get darker earlier. As we drove to the mountains at 5:30 pm, we missed the breathtaking views, because it is already dark. However, we found sunshine at Keystone Mountain today, as you can see by my new header pic!
Although I love early nights snugglying in front of a fire, the darkness can consume people. The darkness of the day and the interior darkness that comes with sadness and lonileness can work on our friends and families spirit.
How do we bring light into the world. Our attitude…our smile…our light can be light for others!
Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it’s you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it.
Love is all around, no need to waste it.
Mary Tyler Moore had it right, she brought sunshine to everyone who met her.
Do you do that each day? Do I bring light to you?
Do we see the love that is all around us?
Can we give the gift of love, laughter and LIGHT to all we meet each day?
Some people spend the week of holidays from Christmas to New Years spreading good cheer, which is wonderful – – – just for a moment, think about what the world would be like if we spend New Years to Christmas spreading good cheer! How lovely! What a deLIGHTful image!
In this time of long dark nights and pewter skies hoovering over us, let us balance the LIGHT for others!
We are here for a reason
I believe a bit of the reason is to
throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.
