Light Moves within Our Darkness

Like most people, I would prefer to escape deep loss and to avoid hard and challenging times. Yet the dark has given me gifts that are immeasurably deep. It was because I wrestled with the dark that I learned to see beyond what was happening on the surface of my life, and grew to understand that everything is more than it appears to be. In time I knew that the dark is not absent of light. Light moves within the dark at a great depth. With this realization came a glimpse of the inordinate beauty and power just beyond our sight.

We Are Only Given This Day

What if we could place a meal on the table differently and then hear, finally, the simple thingslaughter, rain, and the smell of the sea? What if the dark is spilling the impossible blue on each one who passes by, breaking our hearts open until we see that everything gleams with lightuntil we are no longer able to pass by like a dream? A single sentence, a single word keeps turning life over. We are only given this day.
