From Proverbs 20:27, “The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord”.
A young mother navigates the challenges of life, holding her small candle of faith high. What she doesn’t see is the angel behind her, providing all the light she needs. The Heavenly guide is waiting for the young woman to have enough faith to take one step into the darkness before she lights the way ahead.
