Intrigued by the shadows


I have learned to be intrigued by the shadows of my life, Lord.
The stronger the light, the deeper the shadow.
I have come to realize there will always be shadows.
I must accept the shadows of my life as well as the light; they will just always be there.
And so I now  pause for a moment when a shadow greets me;
 and take in its beauty.
Teach me to  stop and be confronted, to be changed,  by them.
This day, Lord, help me to realize what the shadows of my life can teach me
about You and Your great love for me.
