The Sunrise shall visit us from on high...

Winter Solstice is a wonderful time for my family and not just because it cozies up next to Christmas so well but because in our small community we are blessed to have a Winter Solstice Spiral Dance hosted at our local grange each year.

It basically means I don't have to plan or prep anything! We put on our coats, head out the door and enjoy the performances, the cookies, the stories, the dancing, the singing and all the talent our community has to offer in the midwinter!

This year our oldest was a youth leader. He danced, handed out Saint Lucia cookies and crowed for the roaster in the story of the Goddess Amateratsu.

Here are some pictures of our special night...


Waiting for the light


The sun emerges


This little light of mine...

I'm gonna let it shine...

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

Our community by candle light
The next morning, we woke to greet the sun's first raise and drum him up!






Our view of the sunrise

Luke 1:78
...because of the tender mercy of our God,
whereby the sunrise shall visit us from on high.

Hope you had a great Solstice! :)
