Monday Memories: Then Came Light

To a formless world, shrouded in whole darkness

God brought forth light to remove the harshness


To a dark, foreboding room with no shape

Candles illuminate our morning landscape


From a barren, lifeless pine or Douglas fir tree

Christmas brings lights, and makes us feel free


To a cold, hostile land without any light at night

Early man learns of fire, to warm and offer sight


To a student, who feels frustrated in a lesson so dark

A teacher brings patience, and a smile offers a spark


To a darkened, isolated highway on a night with no moon

Bright headlights point us safely towards home very soon


To a world seeking guidance and a fresh start

Lady Liberty’s welcoming torch, sets her apart


To a frightened child, waking up in darkness of the night

Parents bringing a beam of light, to take away his fright


To a middle-aged adult, stricken with eyesight very poor

A doctor’s skill removes a cataract, so she can see more


To an empty and humbling manger, in a crowded stable

A bright star over Bethlehem, showing what is now able


To heal the broken, lost life of a desperate man

God offering a sustaining and hope-filling plan
