The Returning of the Light


In the midst of Faith’s dark winter



Anticipating an end

of overshadowing darkness

brought on by Roman occupation…

A child is born

Faith’s Winter Solstice of sorts

Light of God’s Love

Piercing the Darkness

Hope is reborn

Light returns

in life’s darkest time

A message of God’s Love and Grace

that forever changed the world

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.”   ~John 1 NKJV

    PS…”Jesus was the only person ever born with the distinct purpose of dying! The purpose of the crib was the cross. And unless you see the shadow of the cross falling on the crib, you won’t see the crib clearly at all.” – Skip Heitzig
