For you have delivered my soul from death, and my feet from falling, so that I may walk before God in the light of life.
Psalm 56:13 NRSV
In grief your light is overcome for a while by darkness. Then slowly and with divine radiance, the rosy aura of sunrise bathes the softness of morning with the light of reawakening life. Your journey through grief is finally illuminated by the full sunlight of joy. You have traversed the valley of the shadow of death and live again in the light of God’s love. Christmas is the celebration of light. Receive the blessing when moments of light shine in your heart. Be at peace in the certainty that death is not the end.
God, on this day of rest I know that, in Christ, my loved one lives in your light. I am grateful that you have delivered my soul from death. Amen.
I walk toward the light of life.
