Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought

by Mary May Larmoyeux

My heart is heavy as I write the post today. With the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, my mind can find rest in only one place—God. As I looked at the moon last night, I was reminded that He still provides light in even the darkest of times.
Isn't that the message of the lighting of Advent candles, that Light came into darkness? As Pops and I lit a candle for the third week of Advent last night, we read Isaiah 35:10: "And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away."
I need to read that verse again and again. A day is coming when there will be no sorrow! Revelation 21:4 says, "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
The next time that the grandkids spend the night, I want to point to the moon and remind them that God can light even their darkest times of life.
And may we each celebrate the true meaning of Christmas this year, our Savior Jesus Christ came as a babe to save us from our sins. Our Light ... our Hope ... He will come again in glory, and there will be no more sorrow or tears.

Looking to the Light,
