Christmas Eve in Holland

It is Christmas Eve in Holland. The skies have already darkened awaiting once again for light to appear in the morning. The daylight has decreased drastically during these past two months during my stay in Amsterdam. That fact has been felt even more intensely this week when the sun hit the peak of its journey South and began very slowly crawling once again to the North. The return to longer days and increased sunlight is greatly anticipated. But the sun in all its new found radiance is just a glimmer of the light that came into the world over 2,000 years ago on this night. For that, and for Him, we rejoice...and again, wait.

Merry Christmas
