Yes I apologize for the misleading drawing, I've got one cable, (1 black wire & 1 white wire) going into the switch box and one cable coming out going to the light. The white is uncut in the box. My next project I want to add two switches to control three lights, I'll start a new thread for that one. Thank you for your replies it's helped out tremendously!
