The Power of Light

I woke up to snow this morning and I was admittedly a little bummed. I love snow in the right season, but spring is for sun, right?! Luckily I wouldn't call myself someone with classic SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), but by this time of year I come to expect the sunlight.

I think it's a beautiful metaphor for the "light of the world." When we are in spiritual darkness happiness cannot exist. It's also amazing the power that light has on your soul. When you are truly in the light of the gospel, even the worst times seem a little better. When your motivation is lacking, the light bridges the gap. When you feel all alone, the light warms you like a hug from someone you know really cares. I could go on and on, but I think my task for today is to find the light from within, since I can't get it from the world the way I need it today.

Oh Marianne! I'm so excited that you posted! I check every day, and I love when you do. I miss the sunshine, too, but not as much as I miss you!!! I don't know if you heard, but we're moving out to Saratoga Springs next month, so I'll be much closer to you! Hooray! I'll have to make you guys dinner some day after we move in... :)

It was in the hope of gaining insight into these matters, but above all in order to have access to the occult reality, that the forwards had been working during the preceding centuries.
