In And Out Of The Light

I took this photo yesterday on my morning walk.  It was 6:15 AM and was actually much darker than the photo makes it appear.

As I looked down the street and saw the patches of dark and light it reminded me of the journey of our lives and also parallels with yesterday’s post.

There are times you will be walking in light and other times you will walk through some darkness. 

You should know and remember that the light is going to come again.  You won’t be in the dark forever unless you stop. 

If you are in a dark patch right now some light is coming and it may be closer than you can imagine right now.

Don’t stop.  Keep moving.

Look at the far end of the picture.  Do you notice what you see in the distance?  The last thing you can see?  Light.  Light always comes after the darkness.

The other thing I like about this picture is a thought in perspective.  There are more light patches than dark patches.  Keep your eyes on your blessings.  They outnumber your troubles.

Don’t stop.  Keep moving.

I’m cheering for you.
