Prompt 12

Prompt 12: Sun 26th Nov(As Christmas day is a Monday this year & thus week 4 of Advent only lasts one day, I will be starting this Sunday with the prompts that I would normally start Advent Sunday & running everything a week early to get them all in ... )Advent is the season of lights - twinkling white ones, flashing bright ones, flickering candles. Churches light Advent candles, towns are filled with lights.Lights symbolize the light of God coming into the world through the birth of His son. The light reminds us that Jesus is the light of the world that comes into the darkness of our lives to bring newness, life, and hope. It also reminds us that we are called to be a light to the world as we reflect the light of God's grace to others (Isa 42:6). As we approch Christmas, more & more lights appear symbolizing that the darkness is receding, that something is happening, and that more is yet to come. For those using Advent wreaths, the light that has come into the world is plainly visible as the Christ candle is lit at ChristmasHow is light important in your Christmas celebrations? Do you have dozens of fairy lights on your tree? an advent candle? Do you like to see the Christmas lights in town? Do you take a trip to see them?Perhaps you would like to take time out today to light a candle, and to focus on Jesus, Light of the worldLord of light, shine in our hearts in this Advent season and help us to shine in the world, bringing light to the darkness around us. Amen

As a child, we had loads of fairy lights on our tree.... I used to love to see them blinking and twinklin!!
It was my job to put the decorations up and I loved it!!..... didnt much like the taking down tho.

I dont have a tree now as the young'uns would pull it down but I may get some lights to put up. And maybe a tiny tree that Kali and I can decorate together.

I LOVE to see the lights in the diff places and stores. Cant believe some town centres want to keep them down....... but that's another story.
