At the time of going to press we have no idea what Christmas will be like this year. Some time ago we realised we might not see our grandchildren over Christmas so when we did some essential childcare, we decided to have a “mini Christmas” well in advance – just us and our two grandchildren.
Preparations were made and that included a Christmas tree with sparkling baubles and twinkling lights.
After the children went back home we tidied up and put away the various bits and pieces but not the tree and its lights. It still stands in the corner of the room reminding us of hope and the Light of the World.
Jesus said ” I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8 v. 12
