A Single Candle

All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.

 

 - St. Francis of Assisi

 




John 3:30

Hello, old friends!

My absence from the blogosphere is explained by this verse from the Bible: 

"He must increase, but I must decrease." (John 3:30 ESV)

I've been reading The Imitation of Christ, Embracing Obscurity, and much about St. Therese of Lisieux. It is better at this time that I be little, hidden, and obscure while praying and working on overcoming my sins, faults, failings, and weaknesses, and busy building up the Lord's people.

In short, I am trying, in my own small and feeble way, to be a light in the darkness rather than merely cursing the darkness (terrible and expanding as that darkness is).

Please know that each of my readers - past, present, and future - are in my daily prayers. May Jesus richly bless you with all that you stand in need of. 

Much love in Jesus,

Christine
