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
