Happy Sunday! Raise your hand if you are excited that the days are getting longer and it is staying lighter a bit later each day. Light lifts our spirits, makes things easier to see, comforts us and makes us feel safe. Light is a metaphor for life and goodness. And by God's grace, we have a light that fills our dark and empty places. God's light guides us and consoles us and it is greater than ANY darkness we may feel or experience in our life. This week let's look for the light--whether it be from the sun, a person who radiates, or even a favorite lamp, and let it remind us to feel and trust and be thankful for the light that God shines into our darkness.
