 The Little Light

 

 

 

 

There is a little light,
A little light in your heart,
A little light that has tremendous power
If we allow, it can obliterate all darkness.
That little light in your heart
Let it shine.

There is a little light,
A little light in your soul
If we allow, it carries tremendous wisdom
It flashes sparks and thoughts of goodness
That little light in your soul
Let it shine

No matter how dark is the night
Within, you can always find that little light
The light in your heart, the light in your soul
They’re always there to brighten your world
These little lights of your heart and soul,
Let them shine.

I took the above photos while visiting Blennerhassett Island located in Parkersburg WV.  It was a journey back in time that existed over 200 years ago.  There was no electricity on the island and we were greeted by people dressed in period costumes.

  1. what a novel experience

  2. I love culture and maintaining tradition, So very peaceful 🙂

  3. I was fascinated by the little coloured lanterns people left on the graves of their loved ones on All Saints Eve in Germany. It looked beautiful. Your light show reminded me of that.

  4. I remember some photos of Blennerhassett that you posted before, what a wonderful place to visit. The instrument in the first photo is fascinating 🙂

  5. These are beautiful photos. My favorite is the last one – I love how the light in the sky echoes that of the lanterns.

  6. Lovely images to go with your lovely poem. These words –
    A little light in your heart,
    A little light that has tremendous power
    If we allow, it can obliterate all darkness –
    have so much meaning. This is a winderfulpost, francine. Well done ..
    Blessings

  8. Beautiful photos, Francine. We take electric lighting for granted. Most of us – and that includes me — would have a very difficult time adjusting to candlelight 24/7.

  9. Wonderful post Francine. What is that instrument called I wonder?

  10. A wonderful way to embrace the day.
