Psalms 18:28 KJV  "For thou wilt light my candle; the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness."


Molded by the Candlemaker; and sent to shed the Light

Earthly Candles were given a flame; to brighten the darkest night

Sometimes alone the Candle shined faintly; its light was dim

With so much darkness in the world; all looked grim!

Evil winds blew; the flame flickered but did not go out

Power that gave it light was Greater than all who doubt

How could one Candle make any difference at all?

When it was alone, insignificant and very small!

Yet it glowed on hoping someone would see

The Path, The Cross and The Christ at Calvary

For you see God had placed Candles in every dark place

To illuminate the pathway for all the human race!

Knowing darkness shrouded and confused carnal man

From Hope, Forgiveness and The Salvation Plan

Then the darkness was dispersed; quickly as summer dew

For the Light of the World cast light for all to view!

So even though the Candle's glow be extinguished here

It will forever shine in God's Heavenly sphere

There it will never be troubled by worldly tempest blast

For in God's Domain; the Candle will eternally last!

May your Candle glow; fueled by the Spirit above

For the brightest Candle; is always kindled by Love

Now no more shadows or even skies of gray

For the Lord Jesus has forever shone The Way!

Luke 11:36 KJV "If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light."

Revelation 22:5 KJV "And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light; and they shall reign forever and ever."





Happy New Year!

Brush away old heartaches.
Learn from our mistakes.
Another year is finally over.
A new dawn awakes.

Let the old year out.
Welcome the new one in.
Bury the bad things of the past
As a new year now begins.

Make your New Year wishes
As simple as you can.
Pray for peace and love,
Not for wealth or fame.

Pray for health and happiness.
Pray for your fellow man.
Pray for all the ones you love.
Pray for those who've lost their way.

As the midnight hour chimes,
We leave the old and embrace the new.
I wish the things you wish for yourself,
And may God’s love stay with you.
