I think it’s been four straight days now, and that’s unusual where I live, especially in this season. It brightens corners of your rooms, illuminates the road, and makes you feel all Vitamin-D encouraged. Seeing the sun is really a good thing.
Seeing the Son will be even better. And that will be for a lot longer than four days.

You have not seen him, but you love him. You do not see him now but you believe in him, and so you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, because you are attaining the goal of your faith – the salvation of your souls.

For we did not follow cleverly concocted fables when we made known to you the power and return of our Lord Jesus Christ; no, we were eyewitnesses of his grandeur. For he received honor and glory from God the Father, when that voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory: “This is my dear Son, in whom I am delighted.” When this voice was conveyed from heaven, we ourselves heard it, for we were with him on the holy mountain. Moreover, we possess the prophetic word as an altogether reliable thing. You do well if you pay attention to this as you would to a light shining in a murky place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because the glory of God lights it up, and its lamp is the Lamb.
