From darkness into light

I saw how a flower grew
from seed to bloom
from darkness into light
And I knew that could happen
to our world too —
This growing in
and emerging from
Darkness into Light:
A Light that illuminates
Whose beams radiate
Healing, Renewal and
Whose rays shine
on the promise
of Life again.

And what of our world?
It will be flowering
for all to see!

Providence Associate
