Light in Darkness

I've just realised that today is the 'shortest day'.

In the northern hemisphere December is a dark month. The days get shorter until 21 December.

From tomorrow onwards the hours of daylight start to get longer. I can't wait.

One of my favourite Advent images is light shining in darkness.

"The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who lived in a land of deep darkness - 
on them light has shined."
Isaiah 9: 2
