Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

The Nature of Light

We' ll leave a light on for you

Tom Bodett

Light is a funny thing
It can illuminate

 or blind

It is all in how you use it.

Well meaning  people can be like that as well.
There are those people who race in to your life with a huge spotlight


(conveniently turned away from themselves)
and calling the light 'tough love" 
as they point out your every flaw
Oh dear...
that kind of " light" only leaves people
 blind and hurt and looking for cover.
But there are also  those who bring another light

A light of warmth and peace 
and hope that makes others want to grow
That's the good stuff!

So go!
Bring that  light to someone…
BE that light to someone!

be a kind light…

a soft light

…a light that brings hope, not pain.

Then stand with that person and watch the darkness disappear

for both of you.
And that's poetiquejustis
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16
