Here’s the photo I wanted to share yesterday (found it! a day late!) to show that after bleak mid-wintery days the sun does (eventually) shine. That is definitely a comforting thought when the bleaks creak us down.
But there’s more to take away from this photo. It’s not a red rose blooming in winter, but a red bush (kinda sorta close.) Seeing the beauty of this red bush in the snow reminds us to REJOICE! It’s a happy sort of bush, still blooming with color in the cold of winter.
Isn’t that what Advent is all about? Light in the darkness? Joy to the World?
God’s Son-Light (Jesus Christ) helping us see beauty around us & within us:
red bushes blooming in the snow.
grace, peace & Advent beauty
