Plugging in the Lights


Every evening before bed, my hubby and I walk around the house unplugging all the Christmas lights, and then each morning, we make the same circuitous route plugging them back in.  It would be rather ridiculous, if they weren’t so beautiful.  One minute, the tree is dark and drab, and with one quick electrical moment, Presto!  Beauty and sparkling lights everywhere.  The same old, same old house turns into a beautiful winter wonderland.  🙂

Some mornings, I forget to plug in the Light.  You know, the Light that turns me from drab Lisa into Presto! Lisa.  And my power source is always available, and never has outages unless I don’t plug in.  Jesus says, “I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”  (John 8:12)  “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”  (Matthew 5:16)  Light extravaganza.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

  1. Great analogy….love this!!
    Some days I am more like ‘clap on – clap off’ Gay… is on those days I know my focus has dropped from my Savior to my circumstance.

    • I like what you wrote about focusing on your circumstances rather than Jesus…AND….we used to have a clapper in our room. I loved that thing. Just lay in bed and read and then, clap off! And the light was off. 🙂 Then one day it just stopped working. Sad, random bit of information for your Thursday, Gay! haha

I welcome your thoughts...
