Light Shines in the Darkness

Hola, peeps!

Tristan 2018
Thanksgiving grandbaby! Cutest little guy ever. 

I’m gonna level with you: This isn’t going to be the most coherent post I’ve ever written. I’m on day five of a stubborn migraine, taking painkillers, AND I’m on day five of BEING A GRANDMOTHER! Woooooot! My grandbaby Tristan Alexander was born November 21st, the day before Thanksgiving, and we are so very thankful for him! So I’m distracted. Bear with me. We’re in this together.

Since I’m all about the baby right now, I’ve been thinking about the humility of our Savior’s birth. I’m awestruck to think that the Light of the World, the Creator of the ends of the Earth, willingly gave up his position in heaven and confined himself to the darkness of the womb for nine months. For you. For me. For himself. Such a humble and patient spirit! And to think I get miffed when someone cuts in front of me in a line. Sigh. I need to work on that.

Many people believe that Jesus began life in the womb of the Virgin Mary during Hanukkah, which begins this year (2018) after sundown Sunday, December 2nd.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it… He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him… Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:1-12

My very dear friend Cindy Elliott, over at His-Israel.com, along with Keren Hannah Pryor, wrote up a DIY Hanukkah free download for Christians who want to get in on the celebration. Even if you’re not observing Hanukkah this year, I recommend reading through the guide for a deeper understanding of Messiah and Savior, Jesus.

What are you doing to express humility and patience this holiday season?

Hugs,
Kathy
