Among the best days of the year...

Strangely enough tomorrow is among the best days of the year.

December 21 marks the swing from dark to light, that is the daylight gets longer, incrementally of course, surely and steadily through June. Whatever cold lies ahead will, one day, have to give way because the sun cannot be denied. A local radio host likes to talk about the 21st as the first day of spring and calls people who appreciate this day "21sters". Regardless its kind of a coping mechanism up here and perhaps in the order of things is God's way of allowing the coldest part of the year to at least have the blessing of increasing light.
