A Single Light Shone-by Jody S.

A Single Light Shone – by jody

sun through clouds 

The small child trapped in the well

Saw nothing but darkness and

Felt nothing but dampness…

Then a single light shone from above

And she knew she was saved.

 

The young soldier in the ward confined to his bed

With bandages wrapped about his head

Saw nothing but darkness and

Felt nothing but sadness…

Then a single light shone as the gauze was removed

And he knew he could see.

 

The elderly grandfather lay on the floor of his home

So close to the door

Saw nothing but darkness and

Felt nothing but emptiness…

Then a single light shone as his son lifted him up

And he knew he was not foresaken.

 

A young mother to be was dismissed to the stables where

She bared down with eyes shut and

Saw nothing but darkness and

Felt nothing but pain…

Then a single light shone and for her

And for us by the Blessing of God

Everything changed.

One thought on “A Single Light Shone-by Jody S.

  1. Ah, Jody this brings tremendous comfort. In Him is light. Goes right back to the night-light comforting the little child. I used to be in an upstairs bedroom. Through a closet one could enter that eerie closed off attic. But there was that night-light… (Doug)
