Today we did light the first candle on our advent wreath. I do love the light of candles. I do not quite feel like Christmas is around the corner yet, but I do enjoy the soft light and how it gives every room this special light. It seems to cover the not so nice things and makes everything around it look glamorous. We used to listen to this song about Jesus being like a candle, burning and giving light until the end (literally). That he by serving us gave his life away. I like this picture. Why he did it is something I will never understand, fully. But I love it.
