light shines through

I wrote this entry a long time ago and just realized that it never posted. When reading it I felt that it was something that I had to share. Enjoy. 

Where there is darkness, there is light shining in. We may not alwasy see the light, we may have to search for it but it's there even if it is just a small ray reaching down, it is there. When you are in the darkness it feels like there is no way out. You struggle against the things you cannot see, tripping and falling over yourself and the other things in your life that the darkness hides. You fear that you will never exist the darkness that it will consume you whole, taking over all that you have. But its when we get to our lowest, darkest place that is when we see  the smallest, faintest hint of light peeking in through a hole or old window aged with the dirt of the world. But nothing can stop the light from peering in, it struggles against the darkness to come and show us the way. Then we have the option to reach for it and follow it or stay consumed in the darkness. It's a tough decision, but it's one that we all get to make at least once in our lives, that's the beauty of it all...we get to decide.
