One Candle Casts Out The Darkness

By

One CandleI overheard more than once many people with slowing and challenging economic times saying they were going to cut back on their decorations for the holiday season. While on the surface this seems practical I would relate to them from a past severe financial difficulty I went through, that lighting one candle provided me great hope for the future.

Why? Because

One Candle Casts Out The Darkness.

Darkness, and being downtrodden can not fight the power, the LIGHT of even one candle. Your candle is your spirt, your hope, your promise for a better tomorrow. The year that I went through this enormous struggle I decked out my front yard with lights. The heck wiith the electric bill. It felt so good.

I was on a mission of hope.

Heart of MenAnd you know what?

Things got better eventually. I knew they would. I not only lit up the world with my candle. I kept that candle inside of me burning brightly.

I have seen lives transformed by giving your light to others. It warms the heart of man.

So this holiday season, think twice before severely cutting back on decorations, especially anything involving light. It is the season of light, and we need all the light in our lives we can get.

Darkness cannot withstand the light of love.

Joan: Don't cut back, other than maybe turning the lights off earlier. Be a light out to the world. It will make you feel so good.

Linda: Thanks. You are a stunningly bright light here.

Elizabeth Nieves: You are a gift to all of us in the Rain as well.

Pam: You need to find me my agent for the book. An autographed copy goes to you.

Susie: Still searching for that cowboy with the boots on the floor? Love it. You can't fool me with that light you are looking for!!

Don: Thanks for popping by as always.

Donna: Glad your son and you will deck out the house. Having been through that "bottom" before myself you will be amazed what all that light will do for you. It will lift you up. God Bless You All.

Pat: You are not nuts. But isn't that your picture in the dictionary next to the word "quirky?" Just kidding. You are enthusiastic to the max in all you put your effort into.

William: Great compromise on the cost of the illumination.

Renee Parker: Glad YOUR light is burning bright.

Arina: Thanks for the re-blog. You sure are special.

GARY Keeping that candle lit does it everytime. That little glimmer of hope is all it takes most of the time.
