Sometimes a light surprises the Christian while he sings;
It is the Lord Who rises with healing in His wings:
When comforts are declining, He grants the soul again
A season of clear shining, to cheer it after rain.
- W. Cowper
God has a way of hiding in the shadows. And we have a way of stumbling along in the dark until He steps out of them. It happens in a moment. But when it does, when He steps out and again declares “Let there be light,” the clouds part and our souls’ dark alleys and cluttered corners glow with understanding, hope, and faith. In that moment, if only for that moment, we can see. And we realize that He’s been there all along.
Welcome to Sometimes a Light. My name is Hannah Anderson. This is mostly a place for me to write out loud in order to save my husband and children a constant barrage of "epiphanies" about those times of shadow and light, of life and faith. (My introvert husband would be especially glad if you read along as it would keep him from having to comment too often.) Speaking of, when I'm not sitting down to write, I'm also a mama to three little ones and wife to aforementioned long-suffering husband. Together, the five of us are making our way through this unpredictable world one day at a time.
So again welcome, and although my place isn't very big, there's plenty of room for you. I hope that together we can find that sometimes the Light truly does surprise.
