Where does the light get in? Where does it break through the gray and fog of your soul and shine through? There are times when it seems as though there is always the cold, dark , gray and fog around us. It can settle down into our bones until we are chilled to our cores. Our mood becomes depressed, a nagging sadness or emotional void attempts to drown us…but it cannot last forever. As nothing lasts forever. One of my favorite quotes from the “Lord of the Rings” movie is that of SamWise Gamgee,
“But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
Do you see where the light is coming through? It is breaking through the small spaces in between the cracks of fog and gray clouds. It is shimmering and shining is golden hues near the morning horizon. The dark does not last forever, my loves. It is, as many things are, a temporary darkness. One day, my darling, you will look up and through the cracks there will be the beginning of light. Maybe it won’t stay long. Maybe it too is only a moment but still, it is a beautiful moment. When the light comes in, we can pause, savor the golden glow for the time that it lasts. Eventually, it will come a little brighter, and a little longer. As the tides of the ocean, the darkness and light will come in and recede.
My loves, the light gets through in the quiet, unexpected ways and all you need to do is watch for it.
