Candlelight flicker flame. Dancing waving ember.
Flawless and gorgeous. Shades of amber and ombre reds. The color of precious rubies sprinkled with gold dust. Created by God for us to see in the darkness of night. For warmth in the frigid winter air. For purification from that which might cause harm. The smoke rises and fills the air with a sweet aroma. Praise is Holy Name for such a gift. Enjoy the dance, for it inspires you. Bathe in the light, for it envelops you. No other creation of God can access this glow. This. Is. Love.
Happy Valentine's Day.
