As the sun at noon..

Tidying up a corner today we came across some words of John Donne that someone sent us (forgive me - I have no record who did and when).  In light of yesterday's post they seem very appropriate for anyone whose 2018 has been a dark one.
He brought light out of darkness, not out of a lesser light; He can bring your summer out of winter, though you have no spring; 
Though in the ways of fortune or understanding or conscience, you have been benighted till now, wintered and frozen, clouded and eclipsed, damped and numbed, smothered and stupefied till now, now, God comes to you.  Not as in the dawning of the day, not as in the bud of the spring, but as the sun at noon...... 
That's how we look forward to living in the now of 2019.  A blessed and fulfilling 2019 to you.
