Tonight I lit the Second Advent Candle with thoughts of all the people that are apart from each other during the Holiday Season.
Now the Second Candle of Advent shines at my kitchen table, and it shines for all the people who I would love to have around me.
I would like to be the Shepard who gathers my loved ones together during this season. I think that a lot of the Holiday Season is about togetherness, but for various reasons we cannot always be together with friends and family as we wish .
So for the Second Advent Candle, I let the flame sparkle for all the people that I hold dear. For all the people that I hold close in my heart.
Light the Second Advent Candle and be the Shepard of your loved ones. Together in our hearts we are one.
