My world, like all people’s, is full of light and dark.  The light of all those wonderful people and events that bring joy, given to me by a loving and caring God who is intimately involved in the day-to-day happenings of the world.  and the dark of storms that blow through, bringing me opportunities to grow and develop through perseverance and self-discipline.  It often seems that there are always storm clouds on the horizon, but often, that is the very element that makes the light of right here and right now so very beautiful.

  1. Susan Beth, I just opened the thread on 2Peas and found your blog. It will be fun to follow your blog and keep up with you, since I feel like I “know” you after the light classes. I would love to have you follow me too!
