"This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all." 1 John 1:5 (NAS)
Our house is so looking forward to Christmas. Loriko asked and asked when we could put up the Christmas tree, that’s his favorite, he loves the lights. I like to get everything out and decorate the day after thanksgiving. We woke up Friday (5am) and immediately Riko started asking “when, when??” He was NOT letting the morning go by without decorating for Christmas. (Me either) There’s just something about the lights, isn’t there, a magical, mysterious beauty that I find myself breathing deeper and slower because they’re so comforting. The beauty of Christmas.
I look at my tree this year and keep thinking “Don’t let the disappointments of this year darken The Light.” Think about how Christ has been a light to you this year. Where do you need his light to comfort or guide you in this month and the coming year?
I ran across this the other day and would like to share it with you. As you read these scriptures, may The Light begin to brighten your life in the areas you need Him the most.
As the creator of light, allow God to create light in your life. (Genesis 1:3)

When you are in a difficult situation, God's light makes the rough places smooth. (Isaiah 42:16)
Do you feel ashamed or guilty? Accept Christ's light of forgiveness. (John 3:19)
Chase away the darkness of hopelessness, loneliness, despair, aimlessness, confusion, hurt, or anger as you follow Christ, the Light of life. (John 8:12)
Be a witness to Christ's light by the way you live your life. (Matthew 5:16)
