Through the Lens of Faith

I have noticed lately that the sky is getting darker sooner in the evening. I candleknow it is the way of the world and the path of the sun, but some part of me doesn’t always appreciate the darkness. It can make memories come up more frequently or challenge the sunniest of dispositions.

When the world gets dark too soon, looking to the light of a single candle may help. Focusing on the light at the top of that candle can help you remember that God’s love can burn through all the darkness and help you see past what is keeping you in the dark.

Next time you find life to be a little dark, light a candle and breathe deeply. And let your own light shine for someone you love.
