Facebook friends of mine may already have seen this picture. It’s of our new Christmas lights. We wanted to be festive and decorate the front of our house while at the same time not wanting to go overboard, not wanting to fill the garden with flashing Santas*, light-up reindeer, snowmen, and so on. We wanted something that said, “Happy Christmas” to our neighbours.
And nothing says “Happy Christmas” like a nativity scene.
I did see a light-up inflatable nativity scene that looked really cute, but with the windy weather we’ve been having it might have ended up in Norway! So we went for the rope lights. But they only comes on in the late afternoon and evening. You can’t see the lights in the daylight.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life,and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Light dispels darkness. Every time.
Be blessed, be a blessing
