It’s Dark

It’s dark. So dark if I didn’t know better, I would think I had a mask over my eyes. My hands are fumbling for the light switch. Knowing with the trip of the switch, light will aluminate throughout the room and I will be able to find my way. Finally, my hand locates the switch and it is flipped to the on position. But instead of experiencing the light I was so hoping for, all that is upon me is the unsettling feeling of being bound by the darkness.

So often in life we can be bound by the darkness of this world. Everything can appear lit up and easily seen but in reality we are blinded forever searching for enlightenment and clarity. We fuel this darkness by ignoring the truth and fumbling through using only human energy and the shallow instincts of the heart.  Our minds are held hostage by social network and the huge televisions that are hung in most rooms of our houses. And when we actually interact with people, the conversations seem to ride upon the surface, hardly ever digging through into the core of what is truly meaningful.

When reading the Bible, Jesus claims to be the light, the truth and the way. If he truly is light, then why do we continue to fumble around in our own state of darkness? Has Jesus been replaced with the need to be independent and self-sufficient? Has arrogance and pride kept most from looking past their selves to the true meaning of our existence? My hope is that more will seek out the spiritual realm that can only be found in the words of one man that defied all principles of humanity and actually survived death.

How cool is it to think that he didn’t just survive death but gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit to live within our inner soul? If only we would ignite this Spirit by drawing close to God the Creator and his only begotten son. Then and only then will we experience life as it was designed to be.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
