O Lord, you are my light! You make my darkness bright.
--2 Samuel 22:29 Living Bible
My Lord, forgive me if I have allowed bitterness and misery to darken my life, for my soul yearns continually for the light. In your compassion lead me to the "sunny side of the road where the beautiful flowers grow," that my path may be made bright and cheerful all the rest of the way. Amen.
