To See Thee More Clearly

One year when our children were young We took a trip to the Black Hills area Where we stopped to our cave That was advertized to be one of the deepest in the world At one point The guide turned off his lantern So we could experienced the absolute darkness Two people found the situation so frightening That they had to be escorted out of the cave Sometimes we have to experience the total lack Of something before we appreciate How much we depend on it Like the sun God’s light is always there But we can put ourselves in a position Where we don’t let it penetrate our hearts Rage Resentment and jealousy all block the love And mercy that we most need And keep us from seeing a person Or situation clearly It is in those moments that we make the choice To stay in the darkness Or call out for light
