Yesterday was the longest day of the year. I always look so forward to the days where there is still light out at 9:00 (or later). I just enjoy the light of the day so much. The sun will start setting one minute earlier each day starting today & man, I notice. In the next few weeks, it'll be 8:00, then before you know it 7:00 when it starts to get dark. I get so down in the dumps when that happens. Forget about it when the clocks fall back and its dark by 5:30 - I'm ready to move to Alaska (or wherever it is that has the 24 hrs of daylight!) I sat by a window last night knitting on Amber's blanket (1 more skein left!) & just enjoyed the longest day & the light that was outside my window. The sky still had color to it at 9:57 - Oh Happy Day!
I guess you can put so many comparisons with light & dark & the meaning of Christ being our light in the darkness. Can't you feel the difference?- the warmth and the life the sun (Son) gives us. Praise the Lord for the Light!
