Life isn't particularly easy. Have you noticed? Surely you have, because none of us seems to slip by, unscathed by life's difficulties. We all have periods of challenge and periods of plenty. Yet, there is reason to hope and there is work to be done. We are Kingdom people.
So then, take heart. That tiny flame floating warm on wick atop wax of purple -- it speaks of Zion. It speaks of Almighty God approaching to enter our physical world -- God with us. He is coming as a baby born to save us from ourselves, as a Savior returned to usher in the Kingdom, and via the Holy Spirit to enter our lives today in relationship with our Lord -- soon. As fire leaps from wick to wick amid the weeks' passing -- he approaches. We have hope. Take heart; sense peace; put your shoulder tot he wheel, push along, never forgetting that without Him we can do nothing.
O Come, O Come Emmanuel. Bring us your Peace.
