Simeon's prayer

"Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, According to Your word;
For my eyes have seen Your salvation,
Which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples,
A LIGHT OF REVELATION TO THE GENTILES, And the glory of Your people Israel."
Luke 2:29-32 (NASB)

These verses are so beautiful. And I have been wanting to comment on your Christmas poem, but it stirred something in my heart that I couldn't put into words. We celebrate the Light, but we forget that many still sit in darkness. We forget that two thousand years later we are His messengers to this world. The last stanza of your poem is very beautiful. I too want to share the riches I have received (physically and spiritually)...God's grace is not in short supply.
