No matter how dark the night,
the dawn inevitably appears
and brings with it new colors, new life,
new ways of being until at last the white light
of the Divine dissolves all mysteries,
all questions, all needs simply with Its Loving Presence.
Surely Love is always closer than our next breath,
ever watchful and waiting for us with deepest compassion.
