Christ was one of those lights. Merry Christmas!
If you observe other holidays at this time of year, I wish you the most healing and happiest of seasons!
I’ve always looked for light but more so after I turned 40… and my world crashed down around me. There, in the dark, I found my own personal “North Star”…

My decision pushed some people away, others closer…
