Light of Advent in the dark of December

Dec. 10 at 9:20pm

Today it was warm outside.  April warm.  But it was also overcast and drizzly, so that even at midday, we had to have lamps on all over the house.  Ten more days of lengthening darkness.

It is so, so good to be able to light the Advent candles and read the hope-imparting, heart-exalting readings assigned to these weeks of the Liturgical year!

Otherwise, I fear I'd succumb to gloom.

What inscrutable mixtures of body, psyche and spirit we persons are!  And how kind and merciful of God to answer all our wants as He constantly does!
