Grace and Light

I light a candle everyday during my morning prayer time. Usually it is a scented candle that matches the decor in my living room and has something to do with the season we're in or an upcoming holiday. Lighting a candle also helps to dispense with the darkness that this time of year brings and makes the room feel warmer and somehow more cozy. Somewhere I heard that the candles flame signifies the light of God. So I also light my candle as a way of reminding myself to let the Light of God into my home.  And each time a lit candle catches your eye, you are supposed to say a prayer for peace in your home. I love this idea. Kinda like asking for God's grace and light to shine down on me and mine. And if God's grace and light comes with the added bonus of smelling like Pumpkin Spice or Autumn Leaves well then I consider myself twice blessed!
