Thankful for the Dark

We seek the light; in the natural and in the spirit we long for the light.
God is Light, and He is Love -- The Light is Love
God is Truth – the Truth is Light

The darkness does not warm us
The darkness holds secrets; we long for revelation
The darkness holds the unknown which we sometimes fear
The darkness robs of us our natural eyes

But God, who is Good, and who is Light, created the dark
The dark is a good thing

  •  The darkness invites us to close our eyes for a much needed rest
  • In the darkness the seeds begin to grow, and the butterfly grows his wings
  • When darkness and light touch in the sky, beauty is inevitable
  • When darkness and light touch on the ground, the shadows tell us stories we would not otherwise see
  • Even the spiritual darkness of evil will, in spite of all efforts to the contrary, reveal the glory of light by opposition
  • Darkness has a beauty all its own; and darkness reveals the beauty of the light.
The darkness is not to be feared. 
God who is Light is omnipresent; present in the darkness 
Evil likes to try and hide in the darkness, but do not fear that evil,
for the Light of Truth is always greater than the lies of evil

 It is sometimes in the darkest night of the soul that we will finally
find a beauty of the soul that has so long eluded us.
 "When it is dark enough you can see the stars."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thank You for the light; thank You for the dark
Rest well tonight; be at peace in the dark -- Joy comes in the morning

Faith, Hope, Love

I may have been absent from this blog for a time -- Been busy finishing up a new book
But thankful is never far from my mind

Today I am thankful for absolutes; for the things that never fail

Truth – it is not always easy to recognize, and it is not always easy to accept; but truth, if recognized and accepted will never fail – it WILL set you free!

Hope – it sometimes seems far from us; and when it seems gone our hearts grow sad and weary. Because of love, because of truth, there is always hope. And if we can grasp onto that faint glimmer of it, like a flower buried under the snow it will once again find its way to the spring sunlight – hope will not fail; it will bring new life

Faith – faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen; faith is not always easy to grasp; not always easy to speak, and sometimes we have to hold on to it and speak it out for what seems like forever,  but if we will hold on, if we will speak it out, it will not fail us – faith will move mountains, create healing, change circumstances, change us

Love – love is the ultimate absolute, outlasting even life on this planet, surpassing death; even in the darkest of nights, the greatest of trials, the pit of hell, love is greater, love cannot and will not fail
Today I am thankful for truth, hope, faith and love, and I remind myself to hold them high above any other principle of my heart; I remind myself that they are greater than all
"The truth will set you free"
~ John 8:32
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
~ Hebrews 11:1
"Now these three live forever, faith, hope, and love; and the greatest of these is love."

~ I Corinthians 13:8


LOVE Never Fails!
And that is the Truth!
Hold On!
Never Give Up!
