"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."
John 1:5

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.

Urban Simplicity.

A tough job, remembering that light, especially in view of the recent election. But, you're right, of course. It is still there, and it is still burning. One just has to look for it. Thanks for the reminder!

Thank you Jim. It is really difficult to remember this. But it's probably best for all of us to seek it out. These are really uncertain times. Thank you for your comments.
