By Author Elizabeth White,
LIGHT OUT OF DARKNESS is a book of poems in 5 PARTS acknowledging our “Creator God” as the source of Light in the world and in our personal lives. By dedicating and committing our individual lives to Him, we experience the “power of His love.” When we “trust Jesus,” God’s Son, we receive “unexpected joy!” (PART 1). PART 2 describes the “sinful life” and “evil” and “mean” people. PART 3 has poems relating to the spiritual “spiraling down” effect on our society in the United States due to our separation from God. PART 4 contains poems that are psychological in nature and PART 5 includes poems that are lighter, in a humorous sense, and poems that describe the seasons of the year that we celebrate!
