A Light in the Darkness: June 26, 2015

In the midst of darkness
a light can still shine through.
A light unto the nations,
Though many have already found this light.
Today light beams forth from our nation.

We may not be the first
We pray we are not the last.

Out of weeks filled with injustice, intolerance, and ignorance
For a country in need of good news
Today light shines forth
America bathes in a rainbow of light.

Today Americans “become something
greater than once they were.”
Today “the highest ideals” ring true:
“love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family.”

Marriage is set free
“No union is more profound”

Fear loses
Hate takes a back seat
Irrational thought subsides
If only for a day

Today is bright
Today is right

Today truth triumphs
Today respect prevails
Equality carries the day
Today Love Wins

It is so ordered.
