This Glow

How we prize the fire just now! How pleasant is its cheerful glow!
Let us in the same manner prize our Lord, who is the constant source of warmth and comfort in every time of trouble. Let us draw nigh to Him, and in Him find joy and peace in believing.

~C.H. Spurgeon~

We're only a few days in, but I'm loving the rhythm of advent. I love this setting aside of time, this purposeful moment each evening to share, think, celebrate, anticipate.

The leaves stir restlessly beyond the windows. The wind chimes send mournful wails out into vast darkness. The chill forces us to prefer the comfort of home. So we watch the fire, we light the candles, and we're warmed. We prize this cheerful glow, this glow that brings even more life to each rosy little cheek huddled 'round the nativity. This glow of anticipation. This glow of believing. This glow of knowing. He's coming! Let us draw nigh.
