On First John 1 from June 2013.
I live in brightest light and that light
Cleanses my skin and warms me like no other place.
From the beginning, that place was here, and yet
I had to find it—even though it was here to see.
There is no darkness here—none at all—
And that encourages me and affirms my confidence.
Yet I still recall when the darkness seemed
a place to hide.
It was a lie in that darkness.
I lied there too often. I sought the darkness.
Too often I was confused about whom I was,
Where I was,
Whose I was.
In the light, life is rich and lush.
Here I feel the warmth, and I grow.
The sun soothes my skin and warms my heart.
And here I am alive, and filled with joy.
And it is here that I look forward to eternal life.
In the light, we love and we care.
