I 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.
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.
And 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.
