"This Christmas, let us be the star that guides mankind to our Lord as lights of the world, a city set on a hill which cannot be hidden" AMEN and may this be our prayer all year round! Your thoughtful writing captured my rapt attention.
Your devotional makes some excellent observations. I especially like this one, "O what a joy to celebrate Christmas with power, not of lights from electric bulbs, but from the Holy Spirit who dwells within us." Personally, I think the first paragraph detracts from the loveliness of the rest of this piece, but that's just my humble opinion.
I also love the line that starts with.....Oh what a joy........ Very powerful words! I agree that the history lesson about Christmas lights is a distraction. But, very nicely done.
Nice devotion and interesting history behind the lights. Keep it up.
