Candle's Glow

Candle time is slowly drifting from early mornings to late evenings. What fabulous childhood memories for London! The enveloping warmth of candle glow has become such a way of life for me. It is a wonderful way of nurturing my spirit and my creativity. What had been a way to ease myself into the day, is becoming a way to gently soothe my spirit before I settle into the comforting arms of my husband for the night.
A few weeks ago, while Tom worked late, London had a sleep-over, here. The 2 boys played outdoors as night fell. Reluctant to call their fun to an end, I still needed to watch over them. The blinds needed to remain up, but I didn't want to turn on artificial lights. I lit a few candles... and a few more... When the boys finally came indoors, the house absolutely glowed ! Of course, the boys had to count them...we added 2 more to make 25, fragrant candles alight in our home. We settled in and watched, "E.T." as the boys drifted off into a lovely, peace-filled, sleep.
God never does the same thing twice....but see how He mimicked a candle flame inside of this tulip.
