As the new year begins, I head up the path…wondering…
…lifting my eyes higher…
…reflecting on the past…
…pondering the place I call home…
And I’m filled with a revealing for the upcoming year. As Monet would concur, the most important part of the images that fill my life, is the LIGHT. Looking back upon the images above, notice the glimmer, the illumination, and the glow. Take the light away, and the darkness wins.
So, this year, my guiding phrase will be, “REFLECT the LIGHT into the darkness while being mindful of where my shadow is cast.”
I begin, knowing that I am not the LIGHT. I reflect the light, that NO darkness will overcome.
I take lessons from the reflectors of light that surround me.
While reflecting the LIGHT, I become aware that shadows can bring a temporary beauty upon a canvas of light. But, without the light, beauty disappears.
And, as the light shines through the darkness, the silhouette of darkness welcomes the new LIGHT.
And this new LIGHT brings a life that lifts life that soars out of the cold darkness.
REFLECTING the LIGHT into the eyes of memory, LIFTS my Spirit.
REFLECTING the LIGHT welcomes the new day with new challenges and opportunities.
Shining through the darkness, brings reminders to LEARN, ALWAYS learn.
REFLECTING the LIGHT reminds me to stay rooted in a foundation that cannot be shaken.
2020, I look forward to REFLECTING the LIGHT into the darkness that may arrive upon my path, knowing that I am not the light, BUT, I am called to…REFLECT the LIGHT.
With God’s help, I will reflect and shine.
