Happy New Year!
I have spent the last few weeks in the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures are well below freezing and snow covers the ground. I love the stillness and quiet of winter – the short days and the dark nights with bright stars, stirring my soul with hope.
I pass under the bridge, and I see people who live in makeshift sleeping bags and blankets strewn about in a tent-like fashion. I wonder how they do it in this chilling weather. I hand them food and extend a prayer...in hope that my actions may lessen the suffering of the human condition.
The words and melody from my "Light to the World" song flow through me...
"And the star in the heavens
Reminds me of light divine,
Where there is no fear,
I yearn to do my part in lighting up the world. As I play my songs amidst the unrest, I encounter so many amazing people out there who inspire my light to shine brighter. I am beyond blessed and grateful for this community.
May you find comfort in the silence, peace in the stillness, and healing in the dark times. May your light shine brilliantly upon this new year of infinite possibilities.
