O Christmas Tree

cmas-tree

Every night of every December, I look down this hallway as I’m going to bed and think about one of my favorite verses, “A light shines in the darkness…” And I think about how we are celebrating the arrival of a Middle Eastern family seeking refuge. How salvation is found in places deemed unorthodox or even heretical. But you must follow the star you know by heart, the light you recognize as your hope and truth. Also, this year I’m thinking about how the top of our tree is a little crooked. But mostly, you know, the light and darkness stuff.
