Children will dress up tonight as pirates, princesses, and superheroes. As darkness comes, jack-o’-lanterns and luminaries will shine on porches and sidewalks. You too can bring light and joy to a dark and weary world. Live your life as a light that shows others the way to Christ.
—Missy Buchanan, Spirit Boosters for the Journey of Aging: 366 Devotions (Upper Room Books, 2016)
