Shadow and Light

Shadow and Light


it takes light to bring out a shadow
a shadow isn't visible in darkness
in darkness -- one feels all alone
all alone, searching for the Light
the Light is always within reach
within reach, is the Light of God's love
God's love illuminates the darkness
the darkness of sin consumes the soul
the soul longs to be drenched in Light
in light or darkness, God is always there
always there in shadow and light


II Samuel 2:29
You are my lamp oh Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light.

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
