(My photo – of a pattern I saw in a local shop. The image is of gold embroidered stars on a white/cream background.)

Today – the theme of light– has been highlighted several times. In morning prayer. Seeing a friend’s post on social media. Reading a friend’s blog post. Light seems to be a holy theme – God has lifted up for us at the start of this year..and decade.

In my own reflection on this holy theme – I wrote this.


Stop hiding
Stop pretending
Stop fearing
Their response
Stop waiting
For the perfect time
Led by the
It’s time
Love words
Of freedom
Into the dark
That those in shadow
Can enter the light
Oh lamp-carriers
Stars in the night
You were not lit
To hide the light
