Winter Solstice: Darkness and Light: A Christmas Thought

Winter solstice.
The darkest day of the year.
I feel enclosed by darkness.
I listen to Handel’s Messiah and hear:

For behold darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee, and the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Isaiah 60:2, 3

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light, and they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. Isaiah 9:2

Oh, Lord, despite the darkness,
a star guided the wise men,
guide foolish men like myself,
those poor in spirit
who hunger after righteousness
and by some wondrous thing
have been given a thirst for living water.

Light, lying in a manger in a land of darkness.
Before the beginning was darkness

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth
and God said, “Let there be light!”

In the beginning was the Word
and the Word was with God
and the word was God.
The same was in the beginning.
He was the Light of the World
and the world knew Him not.

There was another darkness at the end of His life.

And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. (Luke 23:44 KJV)

And You arose and brought Eternal light to all mankind.
