The Mind and Soul Foundation – * Day 12: Leave some lights UP! * Yeah, we know the tradition is that all the lights and decorations have to be taken down by tomorrow. But this time of year is bleak and dark, and the time after Christmas can feel pretty dismal. So we’re in favour of nominating some ‘winter lights’ and leaving them up – at least till the days start getting brighter. Can you make yourself a corner somewhere warm where you can leave up some lights, and maybe add a candle or snuggly cushion/blanket, somewhere you can curl up and hide if you need to, to get you through the January and February gloom? 💡 💡 💡 Thank you so much for joining us on the #12DaysOfWellness – how did you get on? | Facebook

The Light Shines in the Darkness…

Advent: A time to reflect on darkness and light.

Hope yet shines through the despair.

Jesus Christ, fully God, yet fully man, comes to Earth, clothed as a baby.

So much mystery and contradiction.

The Messiah, the chosen 1,

Born of a virgin in a lowly stable

Yet the Saviour of the world.

I love to light our Advent candle, remembering the truth that the light shines in the darkness but the darkness has not overcome it.

So for me, it resonates with the truth that whilst I may be battling depression, the Light of the World is my Living Hope. I will not be afraid. The Light has overcome the darkness. VICTORY ETERNAL- no more suffering, no more tears. Jesus wipes them away and holds me and says “It will all be ok. This pain will end.

Joy, the antidote to fear is brightening my world.
