We must live fearless, not concerned for the gloom, the menacing shadows, the gathering darkness.
The darkness does not respond to our words, our worries, our proclamations, our judgments.
The darkness is impacted only by the light of our lives.
We carry our candles calmly,
with confidence and hope and even joy,
knowing that candles do their best work in dark places,
in deep shadows,
where the light is not. yet.
Go light your world.
(And for goodness sake, don't gripe about winter with a candle in your hand.)
What's to love about winter? Candles.
