Treasures in the Darkness.

I write this to all who are going through a hard time.

It’s not a message of hope to look out for the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s not a call to remember after the night comes the sweet morning.

It’s only a suggestion, that perhaps the darkness still lingers because there are treasures in it we are yet to discover?

A diamond can easily be missed in brilliant sunlight. Sometimes it takes the darkness to reveal the glow of a diamond.

Perhaps at those periods in our lives when it seems the sun has eclipsed from our sky, it’s because there’s a diamond right before our eyes?

While we long for the light at the end of the tunnel and eagerly await the morning, we should be grateful for the night. Because even the night has its treasures.

Sometimes we’re led into the darkness to find diamonds.
