Celebrating the Light

     Tonight is the longest night of the year.  Darkness leaves late and slips away early before the day has even seem to begun.  My family's depression mirrors the darkness.  It is easy to feel the grayness of the air and the gloom seep into my soul.  The world can be such a dark place to be.  We are the best and the worst of God's creations.
     Today I choose not to succumb to the dark.  I celebrate the beauty of the winter solstice and the return of the light.   When we focus on all the evil in the world, we will find it. It is there hiding in the shadows of all of us, but it is no match for the light.  All of us have a sacred light inside to lead the way for others lost in the darkness.  The world is full of miracles and love, laughter and light, if we look for it.  Seek and ye shall find.  The solstice reminds us that we have survived the darkest moments and the light will return.  Hope lives, even on the shortest day of the year.
    Tonight, on this holy night, light your flame and lead the others home.
