For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light -- for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true.
Have you ever been in a cave? In a dark room without any light at all? The absence of light produces a darkness we seldom see as we are usually given light from indirect sources. Imagine coming out of a totally dark place into the light as initially a blinding experience. How many of us go through our lives "blinded by the light," covering our eyes from the high wattage of God's love. Yet we are called to walk as children of the light. To me this means we go forward in innocence and faith, not allowing our light in the love of God to be dimmed at all by the cares of the world or by the fears we carry with us. What a wonderful challenge!
OUR FATHER, YOU ALONE CAN GIVE THE LIGHT FOR US TO CARRY FORTH. HELP US FIND THE WAY TO WALK IN FAITH, AS YOUR CHILDREN, IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR LOVE. AMEN
