There is a candle

chasing back the darkness
One small flame
it's beauty flares
against the mass of night

Your name is on my mind
as I talk to God this morn'
from a place here by the fire.

Here the silence helps me hear
the spirit of the Lord
telling me to have no fear.
"Pray and trust in me," says my father
up above. "Perfect is my will and fathomless my love. I will not let one sparrow be without a home. I care for life and nourish it, I do not wish that any should perish but all have life and have it abundantly. Just pray, David"

I lit a candle for the hurting and was glad to have its light.
I struck a match and held it to the wick , and the whole window it did light.
Small is your flame but vital to lighting up the world. Tiny was the match that brought warmth into the cold winter scene.
When all our candles are together and our hope and faith combine, great is the power that we hold.
A favor, friend, if you please:
Light a candle tonight and pray for that person in the dark Posted by Picasa
