But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, which shines brighter and brighter until full day.
Proverbs 4:18 NRSV
Just as there is no one experience of loss, so there is no one experience of light. Light shines in quiet meditation. Light shines in moments of prayer and thanksgiving. Light shines when you light a candle to honor the memory of your loved one. Remember that your shared light shines forever. Love is the divine link to the eternal spiritual presence of the one you have loved and lost. As you create light and discover your light within, each day holds the promise of remembrance, release, and expression.
God, the light of Christmas dawns in my heart. I pray that it will shine brighter and brighter until I live again in the full light of your grace. Amen.
The light of love shines brightly forever within me.
