Little Light

As you light the menorah
And say grace
Remember His light 
Shines on your face
Reflect this light
Everyday
In big and little ways

No need to fear
The darkest days
Just like the stars

Come out at night
You’ll shine so bright,
Little Light

A Reason for Life

When you collapse in bed after another hard day
And you wake up to see the sun’s ablaze
When you stare at the stars
Like glitter tossed across the dark sky
And you realize that there’s more to life
Than meets the eye
A deeper love holding hearts together
A higher power keeping the earth in motion
When you read His Words
Black on white
And it bursts as color
In your soul so bright
Suddenly there’s a reason for life

Stargazing

On the back porch
Stargazing with my brother
Binoculars search the night
The Big Dipper in sight
The moon casts its silver light
Against my face
It’s so far away
With craters and rifts
And shades of gray
Stars around it
Twinkle bright
In this peaceful
Quiet night
Amazed by the Creator’s
Infinite might
To create such majesty
In the dark of night
