Night is coming sooner each day.

Just yesterday I was able to make a positive pronouncement.  In less than a month, the days will become longer. 

That is a welcome thought when you have to wait until 9:00 in the morning to sense that light has broken upon the day.  On the other hand, with darkness is encroaching upon us around 5:00 in the afternoon, we can take comfort in knowing light is on the way!!

Light is a vital catalyst to a good day.  The Bible talks of light — and in the Advent season surrounding Christmas we will encounter this thought more than once.  The best days are spent basking in the light of the light of the world, Jesus. 

So, I look forward to the days getting longer, and to entering the Advent season with the reminder of the greatest light shining into this world!!
