The Longest Night

By
Real Estate Agent with KW Evolution - Topsfield, MA 92593-B

Here we are December 21st, 2020. In the Northern Hemisphere, today is the Winter Solstice. It began at 5:02 a.m. The is day is known, simultaneously, as the shortest day and longest night of the year. BUT, hope arrives tomorrow when we add about 1-minute of daylight each day until the Summer Solstice arrives in June when we have the longest day and the shortest night.

Enjoy the blessings of the day for tomorrow is not a guarantee

Hi Doug... loved, loved, loved that prayer. You'll probably think I'm nuts, but I don't mind the early dark nights.

Hi Nina Hollander 

I don't think you're nuts at all. Nighttime has a solitude about it that can be calming

Doug,

I love long nights, I love the changes we experience.  Life would be dull if things stayed the same...A

Hi Doug - what a beautiful blessing. I enjoy the changes we have and while in the winter I'm always ready for warmer weather, I love the cooler weather because we get to have a fire in the fireplace.
