Fighting the Darkness
When its dark in the morning, you at least know that light is coming soon. Now however, when the sun goes down in the evening there is the sinking knowledge that all that lies before us is hours and hours of dark night. It is enough to get you down.Add to that the forces of darkness that are swirling in my midst. So many of the people I love and care for are struggling with sickness and sadness. My heart aches for them. Just when I think we can’t hold any more, another diagnosis comes in or another crisis hits. The waves of darkness just keep rolling in. At some point I got tired of feeling defeated by the darkness and decided to take action. I decided to fight back with these. I refuse to call them Christmas lights as I’m Episcopalian and we definitely don’t start decorating for Christmas this early. But now I understand why people do.
