glimpses of beauty

Leaf drawn in the snow

I’ve put this journal aside for a bit and now I realize I need it more than ever.  The reality of the world’s darkness weighs so heavy on me.  It’s a burden that I wonder if I can move under.  But during this holiday season, I caught glimpses of beauty that helped me understand I can go on.  Despite the ugly world we live in, there is much beauty to be found.  I’ve developed a desire to fight for the light, the joy, the hope, the beauty that is present.  A soldier of light.  And I want to surround myself with joy.  I want to spread love. I want to share hope with anyone else who may need help standing beneath the weight of the world.

Won’t you join me?
