Return of the Light

I bought them last year.  Now when I opened the wrapping, the fragrance melted my insides.  These mellow candles were made in Sweden, from my favorite store, perfect for the kind of table that pleases me, and their aroma was so sweetly gentle with a hint of bees' wax that I go all limp just remembering it.

All of the many Things I get to do today have slowed or been accomplished, and setting the table for dinner unfolded at a contemplative pace.  That's when I remembered the candles, positioned them in assorted glass candlesticks, and inhaled their bliss.

May the Light return for all of you with such sweetness.


  1. I want to thank you for this post. Maybe you don't know it, but you have a way of reaching inside all of us- with the joy you share.
    And do you know what? I can smell the beeswax too.
    Thank you for asking the light to return to us.
    Love will help us all- right?

    1. Doesn't the wax smell Divine? On second thought, it really is direct from the Highest of All Beings, don't you think? I'm certain that love helps all of us-even those who cannot feel it. Pray for a woman in that difficult place, will you? Thanks, little one.

    1. And so it was. We will burn them at every meal during the holidays. The dining table gets moved around to accommodate a dozen or so folks, and there is not as much light. The candles are lit even for breakfast.

  3. Beautiful! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season!

    1. Blessings to your household as well. Merry Christmas.
