When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Light and Dark
By Patricia A Pitterle

The sun is waking up.
We see small
Fingers of light
Reaching into the darkness,
Stretching ever upward
As the sun peeks quietly
Over the horizon.
Brightening the world
Around us with
One thin finger,
One spiraling strand,
One magnificent breath, 
Of color and light. 
Soon, the trees
Stand in shadows of twilight
As the sun chases 
The dark away.
The morning glow 
Clothed in beauty 
Becomes a promise 
That the darkness
Will not last forever,
And that the sun 
Cometh in the morning.

Life can be just like
The dawn reminds us of 
The darkest of nights,
As we struggle with trials 
And temptations.
We lose our hopes,
Not seeing past the dark
To the possibility of light;  
Not knowing that rescue is just 
Beyond the horizon.
We are in darkness
For our own moments
Before the dawn.
The Savior sends
Small miracles that become
Light in our lives.
We open our eyes to see,
Our minds to recognize,
And our hearts to bask 
In the light of His love.  
The darkness 
Will not last forever,
And we are promised that joy

Cometh in the morning.
