You are the light

We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.

Ernest Hemingway

Yesterday I posted this quote on Facebook.  Today I have the privelage of walking the path with a family who are burying a son, father, ex husband and brother.  It would be easy to look at this younger mans life and judge, condem and blame him for his early death and life’s struggle.  We could also blame ourselves and others for we are all broken in some way. Yet, if we spent all of our time doing that, the light couldn’t get in.

As we process into church this morning, the family, pallbearers and friends will be there, holding space and love for each other.  We will participate in a ritual that we have been practicing since the beginning of time.  A ritual designed to bring meaning to our life’s journey.  A ritual designed to begin our journey from an old normal to a new normal.  A ritual to bring in the light, because we are broken.

I am the light, you are the light, we are the light, It is in our consciousness and hearts, yet up to us to hold up and shine it in this space.  Do not forget.

Bring in the light!

”Blessings on your journey”

  1. Thank you Mark
    This is beautiful. I have also heard in a country song that as our hearts are broken and shattered through life’s losses , it is through the cracks that the light comes in. We are the light. It also surrounds us. A beautiful ebb and flow of Gods love. The vibrational energy known as ” The Light”.
    Thanks again for sharing. This made my day
