Courageous Light

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”

Edith Wharton

Who do you know that needs some encouragement today? You can be the light or reflect it!

I’m sure there’s someone that needs your kind words, your peace, your light. Be courageous today and spread some of your light.

Wishing you peace.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In Your Light We See Light


How priceless is your unfailing love!

Both high and low among men find refuge

in the shadow of your wings.

They feast on the abundance

of your house; you give them drink

from your river of delights.

For with you is the fountain

of life; in your light

we see light.

Psalm 36: 7-9

He Browses Among the Lilies


He says to her:

“My Dove in the clefts, of the rock,

in the hiding places on the mountainside,

show me your face, let me hear your voice;

for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.

Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes

that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards

that are in bloom.”

She replies:

“My beloved is mine and I am his;

he browses among the lilies.

Until the day breaks and the shadows flee,

turn, my beloved, and be like a gazelle

or a young stag on the rugged hills.”
