Father of Lights

Author photo. Sunset over Great Barrier Island, New Zealand

Father of lights
enlighten the eyes of my heart
that I may know you
that I may see you
not as I imagine you to be
but as you really are.

Shine your light upon my heart
into all the darkened recesses
to reveal and to heal
to restore and to make whole.




Stories by Christian writers to encourage, entertain, and empower you in your faith, food, fitness, family, friendship, and fun.
