Light the longest winter nights. Light the house and hedges with a million falling twinkle stars. Light the tree with bluegreenred. Let the light shine out, reflect the wonder of delight in children’s eyes. Lighten hearts, shed light on true desires. Light a guiding blaze towards New Year’s Eve, alight upon your future. Light one candle, then light eight, as moonlight voices lift in song. Light a warming hearth with love. Light a spark of hope: Light up cities, Light up farms. Give light to all those destitute, defenseless, and ignored. You be the light. Illuminate the world.

Love this! Simple yet beautiful. It reminds me why I love winter so much... the cold and dark just seems to bring out the kindness in others 😊
Strong, 'shining' message.
