Fading Light


The days are shorter now. I find myself waking up and wanting to snuggle into the covers, stay warm and tap the snooze button. I miss the light already. I have started doing a novena to shed some of the darkness that seems to have taken over my life. I hate being crabby and that seems to be the state of many people around me. I cannot seem to stand long in the Light these days due to being pulled into the complaints and unhappiness of those around me. I have somehow forgotten how to be a Light-bearer. I need my angels to shower me with the goodness and joy of the One True Light.

How do you cope in these dark days? We hear of the devastation of the Philippines and Vietnam. We watch Mayor Ford unravel publicly without mercy or support for his addictions now that he can no longer hide in the dark. What damage does the dark do to your spirit? Are you in tune with the subtle chipping away of your joy? Grasp it tightly. The fragility of joy and wonder needs your help to survive.

Blessings abound even in these short days. Search for them. Don’t let the darkness overcome you. Love wins now and always. God is there, shining brightly if we have but eyes to see.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
