"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
There is still a light that shines in the darkness. Even in dark and uncertain times there is still light. I forget sometimes and fear creeps in. I become arrogant. Fear creeps in and all I see is darkness. But then I remember and I see love. It can be as simple as a mother caring for her child in the most simplest way. Or someone holding the door for another with a smile to offer. Light always overcomes darkness. And then I remember this and the fear resides. I remember that this same spark shines in all of us. Even those I don't agree with. And that is the hardest part. Even in dark times there is still light. I just have to stay aware of it. There is so much work to do. But the light still shines. Unwavering.
