A Morning in Advent

As the new day dawns,
we rejoice in the first glimmers of light
which remind us of your coming, O Christ.
We give thanks
that your light has overcome all our darkness;
may we share in the mystery of your presence in the world,
and be always ready to live each day for you.

Angela Ashwin from The Book of a Thousand Prayers compiled by Angela Ashwin

  1. The light today was special. It shone through frosted trees and glittered on the Forth as I drove across. By evening there were colours in the sky that defy the palette of the best painter.
