Day 303, December 12

Winter means shorter days.  Though I love many things about the season, I don't enjoy the decreased daylight hours.  As I've written before, I love the sun.  I need the sun.

At this time of year, we celebrate the birth of The Son.  The Son of God.  Though scripture teaches us that Jesus was actually born in the spring, December is our traditional celebration of this most glorious of events.
In the hurrying and scurrying of holiday preparations, sometimes we forget why we are celebrating.

My goal for this month is to focus on The Son and to forget that I am missing the sun.

So, for today, I am grateful for "the reason for the season."
