Wednesday, April 11, 2016: Today, in Mercy, we listen to John’s astonishment that people choose darkness over Light. And yet, we see it all the time, don’t we? Even, unfortunately, in ourselves at times? Let’s pray today for the strength to always choose God’s stunning, yet soothing, Light. Let’s pray that for our terribly shadowed world.  Some extra thoughts at the end of this post.  thank you to all who joined me today. Please spread the word to your friends.

 that this, too, was a gift.

A beautiful melody from James Last to listen to as we think about the amazing Presence of God’s Light in our hearts:
