Life Lived Well in the Light!

The candle of one's life is lit at birth. In the early years, we don't recognize its' glow, nor the wax that drips slowly into the ground. We are too busy enjoying our lives. As age settles in, life's troubles approach, we begin to feel the heat, the intensity of life. And we realize not as much is left. Yet our candles still burn bright giving us as much light as when we first begun, only there is more wax beneath our feet and less time on this earth left to live.

These candles were put in place by hands young and old.
