Bring the Light

Bring the Light

Lighting candles brings me such joy!

Candlelight flickers, shadows quiver, and nearby shiny objects catch the glowing light in beautiful scintillation.

Most of all, candles brings warmth and light.  So, you’ll understand why I tend not to light many candles in Summer.  Texas already has enough light and warmth mid-year.

Still, this week before official Autumn begins, I found myself pilfering the candle box.  Instinctively, I had arranged a large grouping of amber glass and candles on the dining table and filled the floor of my fireplace with an assortment of small and large pillar candles.

I’m fairly convinced Texas is in store for a pretty harsh Winter.  Several friends have reported unwarranted wasp attacks over the last 3 months.  Also, wasps are building their nests inside walls, inside buildings, and higher than usual.  The Farmer’s Almanac suggests that means a severely cold and wet Winter is on the way.

As I see the world holistically, a difficult few months weather-wise may also indicate challenges with information.  Perhaps this is a forecast for communication struggles, lack of clear-cut information, or a time to deal with some of our darker human emotions.

To all of this, I encourage you to bring the light.  The light of wisdom, strength, clarity, and humor are all within you.  Good days come, bad days come, but this too shall pass.

So in dark or light, let this serve as a reminder to embrace what comes and goes, and enjoy the light, no matter how great or small.
