In the home we light the candles,
and then sometimes you can even see the reflection outside
and even the castle is
reflecting His Glory
The seventh night of Hannukah this year it was also my birthday. I was overjoyed to see the castle illuminated...where there is no castle, but just the lights of what was and what will be.... . As if to say, even if we are not fully `built` into who we are yet, but that light from the LORD will make itself known both in us and in the world around us.
It has been my second year of celebrating Hannukah in Japan, there are not many people around here in our area that observe Hannukah or even know of it, so I am glad to share with you and thank you for sharing and lighting the candles together ...
Like on Shabbat, where it is said we bring the light from Shabbat into the whole next week, on Hannukah it is also said that we bring the light from Hannukah with us into the whole next year. May it be so.
Then God said, "Let there be light!"
And there was light! --Genesis 1:3
