LIGHT     OF NEW LIFE

   

‘Light gives of itself freely filling all     available space.

   

It does not seek anything in return;

   

It asks not whether you are friend or foe.

   

It gives of itself and is not thereby     diminished.’

   

Michael Strassfield

   

Reflection:     God created the light and darkness… a very special light dawned on the     morning of the resurrection.  Christ     rose triumphantly from the tomb.      That light has flickered for over 2000 years and triumphs again this     Easter.  Let your light shine, let it     shine, let it shine!  Happy Easter!
