Light Into Dark*

Original photo by Jeff Englund
This image was captured somewhere near Mt. St. Helens. A footbridge frames the edge of a wetland. In the foreground the water shines with a lovely quality of light, reflecting the bridge and the grasses in the surrounding scene. In the distance, the walkway takes us into the darker brush beyond.

So many paths in life are like this one,taking us from the brightly lit places that are known to us into the vague unknown, beyond what we can see from where we presently stand. And yet the mystery and the promise of even more breathtaking vistas of God's creation beckons the adventurer in us ever farther down the path and to the other side.
