And the Light shines on in the darkness, for the darkness has never overpowered it. John 1:5
The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. Isaiah 9:2
Ender, fresh and frisky after a shower, sat with us by the fire while daddy told him the story of baby Jesus. The whole house was dark except for the hearth. We sang O Come O Come Emmanuel, but ender was smothering his face on my lips so I could barely squeak out the notes. I didn't mind, he didn't stink and I can't sing anyway... We let the fire die down a little, then sent that boy to bed! One by one a candle was lit as we took turns praying and pleading with God for the aches of our heart. For him to let His light shine in a particularly dark area. Then we lit the Christmas tree and praised Him. We cherish our Christmas Eve tradition.
