But Men Loved Darkness Rather Than Light

The world’s light shines, shine as it will,
The world will love its darkness still.
I doubt though when the world’s in hell,
It will not love its darkness half so well.

    Richard Crashaw’s poem so clearly expressed his thoughts for his day. It can easily be our thoughts for THIS day. From my perspective I can only thank God.,,,, The LIGHT has come into this world and shines brightly in the lives of those who truly accept it. Only the refusal of humans to accept this Light…..The darkness appears sometimes to still rule. My post today reflects this comment. Thanks for your post.
