I cut down a tree branch that was making my yard very dark. It was about 8 feet long, 4 feet high and 6 feet wide. It blocked my way through the yard. I chopped on it in one foot segments, one branch at a time, finding the joints and using the bigger tools to cut the thicker parts.
The result was a small 2x2x2 foot pile with still further to go if I wanted to cut every segment into smaller pieces.
I thought to myself the dark shadows of our lives are like that. If we take one small piece of it at a time the darkness gives way to the light.
Chip away! The darkness is not as thick as it seems.
The Light is there!
