this a lot
it brings to my mind
what happened a long time
ago when I was young and what
captivated me was the sight of a long thin
candle, one that would sacrifice itself to give light
To make things bright for others and to act as a guide of sorts
Till one eventually dies after the long hours of sacrifice . . . .and I am happy
with God’s grace to be this light for did not Christ say that one needs to die and not remain a single grain? I really loved that hymn we sang this evening at Mass Unless A Grain Of Wheat Falls To The Ground And Dies, It Remains But A Single Grain With No Life, and that is not the way of the follower of Christ, is it? And so my heart rejoices that even as I die I am gaining new life in Him who loves me!
And so let it be, dear Lord
Let it be!
