Thoughts for Winter Solstice

The Christmas season holds so many thought provoking and meditative writings through carols, scripture, and stories written about this time of year.  Today,Winter Solstice and the darkest day of the year, I share two that have captured my attention and that I'll read over and over to focus on the "light" of the season, not the darkness of the day.

Carol: O Morning Star

O Morning Star, how fair and bright!
Thou shinest forth with God's own light,
Aglow with grace and mercy.

Scripture: Luke 1:78-79

By tender mercy of our God,
the dawn from on high will break upon us,
to give light to those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.
