All human-beings begin their journey towards life carried in the safety of our mother’s womb. (Think about this……..almost identical to the shape of the Arc of Covenant box ) ……..containing the Presence of God in the Biblical Old Testament).
Today on this first Sunday in December, I begin a personal journey of birthday remembrance as we look forward to Christmas.
Today, I light the HOPE CANDLE. This is as a prayer. I remember all who in this season are feeling suffering more poignantly. Some folks are desperately seeking to be ‘Happy’, while others suffer the pain of loss. We here in my state are surrounded by bushfires. Thousands of acres of bushland has been destroyed. It has been our worst and most tragic beginning to Summer.
This day I still light the HOPE CANDLE. May this light spiritually be as a prayer in the lives of all who are needing COMFORT today and pierce the darkness of hopelessness with the piercing promise of ‘better’ to come.
THE HOPE CANDLE.
