Here Comes The Son


The sun showed up early this morning in all its glory, as if to say Here I am, after the longest night of the year,  here I am where I have always been, waiting for you to notice me.  Ah, if we have but eyes to see. The light is  a magnificent phenomena up here in the north. We miss it in these short days, but today the light arrived and stayed a wee bit longer. Jesus too will arrive soon, and may also say, Here I am, after your darkest night, here I am, right where I have always been, waiting for you to notice me. The Christ, the Light of the World, will also stay a bit longer in these trying times.

I left the sunshine today for a bit and entered the Sonshine for an hour of Adoration to pray for your needs today, dear readers, for the needs of those on my daily prayer list, for those who pray for me, for those who need it. I settled into the warmth of those Rays and the Light of Love danced before my eyes. I left the hustle and bustle of the season for the Reason. I knelt and let Love shine down on me. The Son is coming soon. Are you ready to receive the Light?



Reflection Questions

Who needs the gift of your prayer today?

Where did you see the Son in glory today?


Light of the World, shine on me in all your glory. Warm my heart and melt my resistance. You are all I need this Christmas. Come, Light of the World, and stay a bit longer. Amen.


About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!

    Thank you for enhancing my Advent this year. I like that you have reflections with each post. I also see how they tie into Ignatian spirituality and I think I need to be taking a closer look at it. Thank you for shedding light there this Advent.
    “E’en So, Lord Jesus, Quickly Come!”
    Hallelujah! Blessed Christmas, Suzanne. Feel heavenly Peace.
