Advent Meditation by Gail S. Chesson
Hope is the first flame held in our hearts
at the darkest time of the year.
Love is the second, leading
us on through the deep night.
From the third comes Joy,
springing from the hope and love that we share.
Peace is the fourth, its glow steady and sure,
calming our hearts in dark moments.
The last candle we light for the Christ Child’s birth;
the brightest of all, a guide to our life.
Light the candles, let them speak of the
light that forever shines.
