Sending a Little Light

Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished. ~ Michael Strassfeld

As I prepared to post the above quote today thoughts sprung to mind that I couldnt help but share. I think of those of us, who do what we do, because we care about others. Im reminded of that little song I sang in church many years ago

This little light of mine, Im gonna let it shine

Hiding it under a bushel isnt an option, though at times we may want to, may feel like we need to, yet as we reach out to others who are lost, alone, confused, etc., its uncannily obvious when the light of hope within each of us catches and begins to shine in those we serve. I dont know about you, but when this happens it causes the light of hope within me, to shine a little brighter.

There are times when despite what we do, the light of hope goes completely out within another, and for a time, that light within us feels the impact of that loss. Grief and sadness, make the world seem bleak, meaningless, and so on, and yet we trudge onward, continuing to reach out, continuing to care, continuing to carry the light of hope for others.

To give of oneself is not always an easy task, so today, take a moment to reflect on the lives youve touched, those you have lost, and those you have ignited the light of hope for. Put your right hand, on your left shoulder. Then your left hand on your right then squeeze a little, but not to tight

The gift of hope, is worth more than a hug, as it lights the world around us, my hope is that youll take that virtual hug, share it, and wear it, this Christmas and always.

May your days be Merry and Bright

And may this Christmas find you basking, In a little more light!

Have a very joyful holiday!!
