winter solstice

Last night at 11:30 p.m. CST, the sun began it's journey back north again.  (My husband reminded me that the sun is not moving, WE are moving.)  Whatever.  Today is officially the first full day of winter, and solstice is the celebration of the returning of the light.  Now the days begin to get longer again, and the nights shorter.  No coincidence that we celebrate Christmas and the birth of the Son near the same time that we welcome the return of the Light.  The sun. 

Wishing you all Light and Peace and Joy as we journey through these days.
