I Am the Light

Hands holding lit jar candle


Today, reflect on the beautiful passage from John 8:12: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of my life”. 


Today I give thanks for
the warmth and comfort
of your light.
I trust the glow of your love,
how it lights my path,
ahead of me, and alongside me.
From our infancy to old age, into death,
you light up every passage. 
Yes, today I give thanks for you.
For your love.
The neverending arc of it.


Today light a candle, either at home or in church, in remembrance of someone you loved. When you blow the candle out, say an extra prayer as the smoke rises toward heaven.
