Let Your Light Shine!

These are the darkest days of the year, at least in the part of the world where I live. Days are short, nights are long and cold.

How I long for the light!

Do you long for the light as well? Do you know what to do about it?

Do you know how to bring more light into your life right now?

One thing is easy – switch on lamps, light candles. They bring brightness.

If you want more light and brightness – shine you own light!

You have so much light in your heart. You have so much to give. Enrich us with your gentle smile. Warm our life with your kindness, your understanding, your forgiveness.

Inspire us with your stories. Nurture us with your caring. Be the wonderful YOU that you  truly are.

Let your light shine
and walk with joy and respect
upon our earth
who nurtures us all
and gives us shelter.

Let your light shine
and honor the dog at your side,
the lizard on the stone,
the falcon in the air,
the whale in the ocean,
for they are all our companions
in our life’s journey.

Honor and love yourself
and the people you meet.
Let your light shine in the darkness
and become what you truly are:
children of light.
