~ Light a Candle ~

When ready to begin, read the accompanying words for each candle. (To light a candle wand over the top of the candle with the mouse.)
When finished with this reflective blessing all the candles with be burning--for joy, hope, courage, peace, grace and love.

    I light these candles
A yellow candle of joy...despite all sadness,
A pink candle of hope...where despair keeps watch.
A purple candle of courage...where fear is ever present,
A white candle of peace...for tempest-tossed days,
A blue candle of ease heavy burdens.
A red candle of inspire all my living.
These Candles will burn to inspire and to remember.

Modified from a blessing was originally entitled, Light Candles at Christmas by Howard Thurman.

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Albert Schweitzer
