I remember the mystery of candles I could not blow out.  No matter how many times I huffed and puffed, the flame would simply not disappear.

There will always be things that try to extinguish The Light of Jesus inside of us, but it cannot happen.  He is in us forever and always.

Let Him shine.  He is The Light.  We are called to be The Light too.

The following is from a song by Peter Yarrow.  The link to the song follows.  Enjoy!

Light one candle for the strength that we need to never become our own foe.

And light one candle for those who are suffering, pain we learned so long ago.

Light one candle for all we believe in that anger not tear us apart.

And light one candle to bind us together with peace as the song in our hearts.

Don’t let the light go out!  It’s lasted for so many years!

Don’t let the light go out! Let it shine through our love and our tears.
