“Father God, thank You for sending us The Candle, Your Son and our Savior and Deliverer, Jesus Christ. Though in our darkest nights or worst days (or BOTH), still The Candle stays LIT, ALL GLOW, none blow. The Candle will NEVER blow out if I AM still ‘PRAY.’ Every still affright and still every line of each sight, The Candle is still LIT. Help us, Father God, ‘Keep IT LIT and Keep ME GLOW.’ ‘I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have Peace. In this world you will have trouble (trials). But take heart! I have Overcome the world’ (James 16:33). There will be much trouble (trials) in this life we ourselves cannot overcome (handle), but we can Overcome (Handle) ALL trouble (trials) with Christ, The Candle. On a more personal note, of course I go through trials. Don’t we all? Why am I and you in trials of shadows right now? Who will compose my and your trials of shadows right now? Christ, The Candle, me and you must still LIT and IT must still GLOW (BOTH). What other Way than this BOTH for me and you BOTH to get through these trials of shadows right now? There is NO OTHER WAY than IT LIT! When my birthday (November 13) arrives this year, I want these nonhuman animal candles (pictured) LIT on my cake. If I am to continue God’s Advocacy for extending love, compassion and mercy to God’s nonhuman animals, may my birthday cake (vegan, of course) this year (and every day) be completely covered on top with every nonhuman animal candle LIT, ALL GLOW, none blow. No darkest nights, worst days, or any trials whatsoever, will EVER blow these nonhuman animal candles out! I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious and GLOW Name of Jesus Christ, and this prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking. Amen.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in ALL GLOW, none blow out The Candle, Jesus Christ, this daily leavened [Jesus LIT!] bread.”)

Of your darkest nights, a candle still glows.

Of your worst days, still a candle you light.

Though you in nights and days, God still “Shadows.”

God casts a Shadow when you’re still affright.

Of my darkest days, a candle still glows.

Of my worst days, still a candle I light.

Though me in nights and days, God still “Compose.”

God Composes still my line of each sight.

“I AM The Candle that will Light your way,”

says Jesus. “Keep IT LIT and Keep ME GLOW.

If trials to blow IT out, I AM still ‘PRAY.’

The Candle still LIT! ME, ALL GLOW, none blow.”

There’s much in this life we cannot handle.

There’s much we Handle with Christ, The Candle.

  1. On my darkest day, a candle still glows. It was a great reminder today. God is a candle that will light your way. You can count on it even if you run astray.


  2. I need Christ The Candle right now as I’m getting ready to go to church to do a lesson at Celebrate Recovery for the entire audience. I also need Christ The Candle about whether to go to the CR Summit tomorrow morning….or not! “Please, Christ, be The Candle and The Light (BOTH) I need right about now! 🙏
