Nurturing Thursday… “sometimes our light goes out, but is blown into flames by another human being…” Albert Schweitzer

“Sometimes our light goes out,
but is blown into flames by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light”

Albert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer quote Sometimes our light goes out

~

We’re in the presence of so many others each day…
And also, in the “presence” of ourselves…
perhaps, to become more aware….
to realize how fragile each “light” is,
to tenderly nurture the light in each one of us…
to realize that we have the ability, the honor, the opportunity,
to rekindle light
…you just never know…

~

Albert Schweitzer quote  sometimes our light goes out  suncatcher

~

you just never know…
who might be hurting?
who might be feeling a bit confused or overwhelmed?
Who might “light” up…rekindle… if they received a bit of…
kindness, encouragement, generosity, compassion, love…
We have the ongoing opportunities
to rekindle tender and fragile lights …

~

rekindle light with kindness, compassion, love, generosity and encouragement

~

May we become more aware, more generous and more encouraging…
rekindling the precious lights

  1. this brought tears of gentle hurting for all those who need us to help rekindle the light they are!
    “to realize that we have the ability, the honor, the opportunity,
    to rekindle light” this, this is the honour that is ours as human beings, here together.

    I read this today with my cellphone and typed a comment but l lost my message. The pictures are displayed beautifully in my phone. I have had many instances in my life where my light has been rekindled by the kindness of others and you have been one them. Thank you for sharing your light through your posts and the kindness you extend to others.
