A reflection for Hanukkah



My cyber-friend Alden Solovy (over at To Bend Light) has posted a new reflection for Hanukka and I'm happy to share it with you. 

Lamps Within
Listen, dear ones,
A lamp glows inside your heart,
With eight ways to light it,
Eight ways to keep it shining,
Eight ways to keep its glow.
Light it with your joy.
Light it with your tears.
Light it with this song.
Light it with the works of your hands.
Light it with hope.
Light it with service.
Light it with this prayer.
Light it with praise to God’s Holy Name.
Bring the lamp of your soul out into the street
So that all who have forgotten
The miracles around us
Will remember the beauty within,
So that all who have forgotten
The miracles of old
Will remember to rejoice.
Exalt, dear ones,
A lamp glows inside your children.
Light it.
Keep it shining.
Watch it glow.
Light it with your joy.
Light it with your tears.
Light it with song.
Light it with the works of your hands.
Light it with hope.
Light it with service.
Light it with prayer.
Light it with praise to God’s Holy Name.
