The Lights Came On
The lights went out in south Texas during the winter storm and frigid temperatures. Periodically, they came on and left, leaving my neighbors and me to go to bed at dusk and wait for sun to rise before we got up. Then it happened, in the middle of the night, the lights came on and stayed on. I find this a great lesson for life. Troubles hit and knock us down. We wonder if we’ll ever get through. A brief spurt of hope appears and disappears. Then, when least expected, the lights come on. Our troubles are behind us. Don’t quit. Don’t give up.
