The Light of Jesus

Light and Violet © twyatt 2014One evening, it was turning dark and a few of us noticed that the ever-present, shining beacons-in-the-night lights were not on.  We teamed up and looked and looked for the magic button.

Looking.  Looking.  And then, there it was. Right where it might be most perfectly placed in a Monastery – to the right of Jesus.

It wasn’t lost on us – it was just another little gift before bedtime.  And a reminder of Christ’s gift and promise to us all.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
