What the Bible says about light and seed

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.

The Good Seed and the Weeds “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

What Lies Beyond the Door - A Light Poem to Counter Dark Times

Composed, Revised and Published by Jean-Louis Mondon
Dedicated to my brothers Paulo and Cezar Elbert who are an inspiration. 

While I was still dreaming
Contemplating the blushing dawn,
My Father, the Master Gardener
Drawing me from my sleep
Invited me to step beyond
The threshold into the deep.
With a Word of His mouth
and a twinkle in His eye

Come with me to my garden.
We will stroll down the path 

Where the cool, soft breeze,
Exhales its subtle, calming fragrance
Splashing the resplendent light
Dispersed in diaphanous tones.

Together in sweet communion

we will rejoice walking
On this earth, your temporary home
My good and beautiful creation.

Behold, the most exquisite flower
One that grows and blooms toward the sun
Of a matchless love
In Jesus Christ my beloved Son.

The soft soothing warmth of the rays
Emanating from his eyes,
Filled with mercy and compassion 

Beckons the humble and contrite at heart,
Even the most broken: “Come and rest in me”

The fragile beauty of its essence
Never fades into forgetfulness
But dying to self will be transformed

Into good and lasting fruit,
For the flowing spring of the water of life

That feeds her never, ever runs dry.
