Hanukkah Begins  
Hanukkah Day VI by EgretStudios

A candle is a small thing.
But one candle can light another.
And see how its own light increases,
as a candle gives its flame to the other.
You are such a light.
Moshe Davis and Victor Ratner



To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle.
~Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Mary,
Though you may not realize it, "You are such a light."
Happy holidays.

We are the Light of the World
Light and love, Mary!

I recently skimmed over an article that was pointing out the different holidays and traditions in various cultures and how they all involve light somehow. I thought that was pretty amazing. It made me realize what a universally important concept light is and how we're all more alike than different. That article and your blog make me want to create light and share it!

May our light shine, Neriza
