ANOTHER'S LIGHT

ANOTHER'S LIGHT
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Push rewind button.
Road trip to my father’s home;
Roseau, Minnesota,
400 miles.
Travel by night.
Pitch black.
Desolate terrain.
Deer and moose
Graze like cattle.
2:00 AM in the morning;
Exhaustion peaks.
60 endless miles left,
Some journeys never end.
~~~
Plight:
Car lights dim,
Dimming.
Nothing.
Barren blackness.
No moonlit sky to guide.
No traffic.
No light in sight.
Prayer offered up in darkness.
Barely moving.
Deer crossing.
Rearview grace …
Called light.

Car emerging out of darkness.
Slows behind.
Stranger;
Assessing plight;
Passing.
Slowing.
Becoming light.

59 miles.
Nameless angel,
Stranger bringing light.
~~~
Approaching destination.
Final mile.
Right on gravel.
Amazing wonder:
Stranger’s blinker
Left on gravel.
Paths divide.
Turn aside.
Home.
Prayer to praise;
Light provider.
God …
The “Guider”
Leads us home.
~~~
Stranger’s light;
Engaging night.
Beacon,
Guide,
Emitting light.
~~~
Look to be,
Another’s light:

Pass slowly.
Assess plight.
Become light.
Engage!
~~~
God is light.
In Him;
No darkness.
What invades you,
Will escape you.
Shine,
Guide,
Lead.
Be light.

Lead another home.
~~~
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:14-16
