John 1New International Version

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.

The wind is blowing

and the night is cold

yet there is Light

fulfillment of a promise of old

New life

Light in a baby’s cry

promise of redemption

in a world gone awry

With God in the beginning

through whom all things are made

every thought known

life is portrayed

The darkness in the world

attempts to put the Light out

trials and tribulations

continuing to place doubt

Still the Light persists

growing within those who believe each day

praising God above

as the Light paves the way


Thank you for overcoming the darkness in this world and giving us hope. May the Light never be put out.
