The love from the cross drives the darkness away

In this picture, a young 4-5 year old child has drawn a manger near the center of the page, surrounded by darkness. The cross appears to be rising out of the manger. The love from the cross drives the darkness away.

I love that the incarnation, death and resurrection are all together in this art that "drives the darkness away." It reminds me not to belittle the the birth of Jesus as "cute" for children, or to withold the death and resurrection as "too hard" for children. And it is written in the present tense! What is our darkness today? How does the love from the cross drive it away? Let us have hope in God's power through Jesus gift of love and risen life.
