My dear friends, thank you so much for following me, even when I’ve been absent so much this fall. Thanks for coming back and for hanging in. As I am hanging in! Not completely lost just yet.
And so I send you light – light for your spirits and your homes, light to enter the darkness, light to bring warmth and peace.
May your winter holiday, by whatever name you call it, bring you lightness of spirit in this time of changing lives, changing times, changing landscapes.
And that, dear readers, is my wish for you…that you also be a light in the darkness for others.
I’m reminded of a children’s song we sang in Bible School, oh so many years ago: “This little light of mine; I’m gonna let it shine….”
May your light so shine that others may see your good works, to paraphrase another favorite song.
And may your holiday bring you and those with you a measure of peace and joy.
From my family in the house, Cliff, Janet, Stephen, Nathan, Kyong, and the many family members not here, Michael and Kristina, my sisters, brother, nieces and nephews, in-laws and outlaws, Merry Christmas.
