Light and Hope

The girls participated in lighting the first advent candle with us this morning at church. They read beautifully and the verse is always a comfort to me, both in the dark days of winter and in the dark days of life.

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness–on them light has shined.


This photo was taken accidentally as one of the girls handed back my phone. I almost deleted it, but I like the way it caught a little glimpse of the day’s project, along with my snack and tv-show (Christmas Cards, Market Basket Black Cherry Greek Yogurt and “Decline and Fall” on Acorn, respectively, in case you were curious.)
