I have always loved candles. Something in the flickering light speaks to my heart.
It’s one of my favorite parts of early evenings-watching the candles I light on every flat surface cast a soft glow and chase the darkness.
Even a small light offers hope.
Christmas Eve is a natural time to gather with family and friends, to honor the ones no longer present, to share our love, our memories and our sorrow.
So when I ran across this post on a Compassionate Friends site, I wanted to share it. I hope it blesses your heart like it blesses mine.
This four candle ritual is a beautiful way to create space for tears and also invite laughter and hope into hurting hearts.

I have been recommending your blogg and FB site to the parents I support who are bereaved by suicide.
This is a lovely ritual which I know I will use and hopefully they will also find comfort in doing. Thank you for sharing.
“Christ be our light, shine in our hearts,
Shine in the darkness.
Christ be our light, shine in our church
Sending love across the ocean ❤
