The Old New Year! So here we are…


We will light the strangers candle!



We will light the stranger’s candle?

It’s something that we’ve done

for as long as we’ve been a family.

Lighting a welcoming candle in a window

on Christmas Eve

for any stranger walking home

returning to their family in the darkness.

Or maybe a child of ours

making their life’s journey

in their own way.
