Devotions from Judy's heart In one of the O.T. readings of the Christmas season we have, "Arise, shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you." Isaiah 60:1 During Christmas we are reminded that the Light has come. Jesus came as the light and the darkness has not overcome the light. The other night Al went for a walk wearing a device on his head that acted as a headlight, enabling him to see in the total darkness. Living as we do in the North woods, winter can be a time when we are engulfed in total darkness by 5 p.m. He came back excited that he could now take prayer walks in the evening as well as during the day since he had plenty of light to see. I just read this prayer today from Daily Texts from Mt Carmel Ministries and maybe one for us all: "Father of lights, I'm thankful that the light of Christ is stronger than darkness. In my weariness I often lose sight of your light. Whenever darkness threatens to overshadow me, reach out to me and fill me with your life, light, and love. Today keep me awake and aware of the needs of the others who have lost the way." We are children of the Light, let us walk in the light and share the Light of Christ.
