This year Christmas lights are speaking to me. About Advent. Light casting out darkness. Light leading us home. Christmas lights celebrating freedom from fear.
Emmanuel Emmanuel. Red and green — you’re accepted. Blue blinking icicles — you’re loved. Clean floodlight glow — you’re home.
So let go and smile sometimes and step into curiosity and believe that this is enough. Wait and abide. Mourn and hope. Whisper Emmanuel and edge your roofline in bright, colorful reminders.
