Weekly Challenge: Lover of the Light

Friday, March 22, 2013

There are times where I find myself clinging to the light. This week was one of them. Our neighborhood has been plagued by violent attacks against women recently and suddenly the precious neighborhood that once felt so safe seems more like a prison.

It's Spring in Texas and that usually means open windows, long walks and playing outside until dusk. Now there are just rules. Lock your doors. Keep your windows shut and locked. Turn your alarm on at all times. Play only in the backyard with the gates locked. It breaks my heart.
So we cling to the Light that we have been given. Our entire community rallies and organizes neighborhood prayer walks. What was intended as an act of violence against many is being used to draw us closer together. Those that were once strangers are now bound together. We encourage one another. We pray for one another. We pray for the perpetrators. We are strengthened! And we strengthen our Love of the Light! xo

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. John 1:5


  1. Oh how sad to hear about your community and such events but how pleased to hear that your light shines and your faith is not darkened by such tragedies.

  2. Thank you for this word of encouragement. So needed right now!
