Light in the night (Castelldefels)

Today I am grateful for light. It warms the earth and feeds the plants. It makes us able to see colors, and God, you know how very much I love color! It is powerful and elemental and can be harnessed for clean energy. It travels through space for billions of miles and can be seen across the span of time. It chases away the darkness and our fears. It helps us find what we have lost. It brightens our days and creates romance and atmosphere. Light guides us and keeps us from harm. It helps us to see the visible and the invisible; shows us the temporary things of this world in all their beauty, even though they will soon pass away and shows us the eternal things of Spirit in all their glory, for they are everlasting to everlasting. It guided the wise men to the stable and the King of Kings. It burns within each of us as a mark of divinity. It is the sun, the moon, the stars, the rainbows, the angels, fire, flame, and truth. Light is essential to life. It is said to radiate from the throne of God the Father in the kingdom of heaven. It was the first thing ever created. It stands for inspiration, guidance, love, warmth, sustenance, truth, ideas. Without it we would cease to exist. With it we have the opportunity to spread it around, reflect it, shine it, share it, point it, gather around it and, as God is Light– worship It. I am on my face before His Light. In awe I marvel at what the Creator has made. I am grateful for light and it is good.
