The Light

“The Light”

The walls are rough, time has done what it does

But the Light is sure and steady

The window calls out through the hardness

Come to the Light

The Light warms and comforts and illuminates

Time cannot touch it.

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “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

Light Over Darkness

“All of the darkness in the world cannot put out the light of one small candle.”  ~Unknown

Dark night, no moon, no stars, just blackness.  You feel as if nothing could cut the dark.  But as soon as someone lights one little candle, or pushes the switch on a flashlight, what was once dark is light.  Just like that.  Fear is gone, relief comes.  Light.  Hope.  Future.  Peace.  May God fill your heart and mind with His light today.  Lisa

“You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.” ~Psalm 18: 28

“In Your light we see light.”  ~Psalm 36:9b

Looking for a Place to Shine

Since I was a little girl, I have been drawn to the light.  To the sunshine, to smiling people, to laughter, to music, to water dancing diamonds in the day.  My soul cries out for those things and needs them like food.  God calling out to me….that’s how He does it.  With light and beauty and music; all saying “I’m here…I’m here.”  Today I’m going to try to be one of those sparkly, smiley people; with His help, I’m going to look for my place to shine. 🙂  Blessings, Lisa

Follow The Light

Christmas is a season full of light.  Sparkly lights on Christmas trees, lit garlands wound up staircases, bright stars, garishly-lit yards with every color light under the sun.  And we are fascinated by them; it’s hard to draw your eyes away.  Seeing the lights, the child in all of us comes out for a moment….”Ooohh, look at that!”

DSCN0005 On the very first Christmas, the three kings from far away lands saw an amazing star…full of light and one that had never been seen before.  It moved them, literally, across many miles in search of the reason for the great wondrous light.  It led them to Jesus, and they worshiped.  They knew that the Light had come.  “When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.  On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.” ~Matthew 2:10-11a

Search for Him; He’s waiting at the door for you to open it.  And you will see Light like you’ve never seen before.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa
