Let there be light

I was really inspired by His Girl Friday's entry "Let your light shine..." I particularly liked the Mandela quotation.

The section where he says "And when we let your own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same", triggered a thought. So I flicked through my journal and found the stuff below partly completed. (You might think that it's still partly complete - but I'm posting it anyway!)

we need shafts of
light
to sustain
hope

we need threads of
hope
to sustain
commitment

we need a lifetime of
commitment
to be
disciples.

Hi ER,
I love the poem!! Beautifully said!! :)

We must have had a mind-meld today (Spock Star Trek) because I was thinking on the same thing, and had a similiar discussion with my eldest teen. Either that or twas the Spirit moving folk to think deeper than the everyday.

ps, thanks for the reference :)
