THE LIGHT SWITCH 574
Have you ever gotten up
in the middle of the night
and stubbed your toe? Did you know that a stubbed toe
in the pitch dark is more painful
than in the daylight?
An anonymous writer gives us this thought...
"We are all in a dark room. If you know
where the light switch is, share the knowledge."
Perhaps it would be best, if we could,
to turn on a light before trying to wander
too far in the dark.
Spiritually speaking, who among us does not suffer
occasionally from night blindness?
It is those times, when it is the darkest
and we cannot see anything at all,
that we need someone... perhaps you...
to turn on our light switch... to keep us
from stumbling in the dark.
