Thanksgiving was wonderful--family, friends, good food--lots of laughter and music. It was joyful. My Beloved husband, who left for heaven a little over a year ago, would have been delighted. Our small niece was playing my daughter's tiny pink Ukulele. And wow! She is doing GREAT for her age--music runs in our veins.
In fact, after Thanksgiving dinner, we had a regular Hootenanny. With three ukuleles, the big bass fiddle and a guitar we made quite a little band. We sang and laughed and joked--ah, we made some precious memories yesterday.
And now Christmas is just around the corner. I have always loved Christmas--this year, with my sis and niece living with me, we will actually decorate for the holiday.
I am so glad we have a special day to celebrate the greatest story ever told. Isaiah 9:2 of the Old Testament of the Bible prophesied, "The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them." God sent His dear One to earth--He is the light-bearer, the one honored at Christmas.
I love the idea of God's Light upon earth. Light is warmth and illumination. I know what it is like to live in darkness and depression--feeling so lost and alone--these words found in Matthew 4:15 are a great comfort to me. "The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."
Merry Christmas dear ones. May God bless you with His light, joy and comfort.
