Crackling candles (post 9)

I bought a new candle for this Christmas season.  It's the "woodwick" brand - supposed to sound like a crackling fire.  And it does, somewhat.  Of course, it doesn't have quite the same "roar," but it does a credible job for one small wick.  And it has a wonderful fragrance - gingerbread spice.

It reminds me that I am to be, in my small way, a visual aid for the wonder of Christmas.  Like my new "crackling candle," I can bear the soothing sound of Christ's love to a tense world and emanate the fragrance of His grace to those I meet.
