I wanted to stop and share our verse before I start the coffee and the day gets away from me.
We gathered in a crowded sanctuary yesterday afternoon and took up a good portion of a pew near the front and I liked it.
When it came time for us to hold our lighted candles and sing Silent Night, Emmett took his and held it up as high as he could. Like a sword in the hand of a warrior, he stood straight armed and beaming through the whole song.
He must have remembered from previous Christmas services that at the end, we all raise our candles and he was ready, willing and eager to shine forth his light.
I hope he always is.
Good Father, the people of this world don’t know you. But I know you, and my followers know that you sent me.
During this time of year, it has been easier to hold up the Light of the world.
Will we continue to remember as we move into 2019?
