This month I’m using the image of light in my Sunday Inspirations to introduce my new novel The Color of Light.
These words by Albert Schweitzer have long been a favorite of mine. Sometimes our light does goes out, and no one could give a greater gift than to blow it back into flame.
In The Color of Light a family fallen on hard times is given a helping hand by a woman of deep compassion. But the Reverend Analiese Wagner finds many obstacles in the way, and the light she offers — as well as the light within her — is almost extinguished. Unexpectedly an old acquaintance returns to help her find her way through the darkness.
Has someone helped rekindle your flame when your light has gone out? Have you helped someone else do the same? I’m grateful for the times I’ve been helped and the times I’ve been privileged to do the same. You, too?
