I am never on my own. Nothing can separate me from the love of God (Romans 8:35-39). He asks me to shine His light, which I can’t do on my own, but I don’t have to because the Holy Spirit lives in me.
I am a lone candle, and my reflected light shines brightly in the darkness. But when we add others, think a large candelabra, so much more light pushes back the darkness. My prayer is that the church is like the candelabra, welcoming and loving, inviting others to join us in a circle dance of love.
light sources: tinies together
I reflect only an iota of light
because I am tiny.
Oh, how much light could be spread
if I was just one
of many miniscule lights
Wait. I am…
…one of many
who contain the Holy Spirit fire.
God planned it that way.
Let’s light up the world.

Just me (in the Holy Spirit) shining the light; I join others in spreading the Gospel; and God’s love explodes from the Church
Many hands make LIGHT work (intentional double meaning).
One of my greatest blessings is sharing faith in God with my husband.
