I grew up to hear that there is always light at the end of the tunnel. Our dear motivational speakers will stop at nothing to make us see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Preacher man tells me we live in perilous times, but as Christians, we must forge ahead for there is light at the end of the tunnel.
My teacher told me nothing good comes easy which was why we were tested and examined with the hope of passing; which is light at the end of the tunnel.
We find ourselves working jobs we don’t like and earnings we don’t deserve because we hope for the light at the end of the tunnel.
But what if, just what if, there is no light at the end of the tunnel? What if, just what if, it went out before we got to the end of the tunnel?
Will the world end? Will we sink into depression? Will we lose all the hope we had?
My father always said, “Be prepared”, an echo of the Girls Guide Motto.
So, if I get to the end of the tunnel and there is no light, I won’t panic. My backpack is loaded: A flashlight, a pack of batteries, a screw driver, a bulb and maybe a snack; ready to replace the light at the end of the tunnel or illuminate the tunnel with my flashlight.
Whatever the case may be, I won’t be caught unawares.
