A light shines brightest when it's darkest out. If it weren't for the dark, we might not even notice it. Darkness reveals the glory of the light, and makes it shine even brighter.
I'm going to think about this in my darker moments and marvel at the wonder of the light that shines to carry me through.
We are all lights in some way. And we all have the opportunity to shine brightly and illuminate the darkness around us. We have the opportunity to be a light for ourselves and for others. And the darker it is, the brighter we can shine.
Have a wonderful, blessed New Year. Find the light. Become the light. The real, true, forever answer is in the light.
