What the Light Reveals

Light is illuminating. Light is revealing. Light is beautiful. Light shows different aspects of the same thing, depending on the day, the time, your perspective.

Take a look at the old mill that is beside our mill house. I have taken many, many photographs of it over the years. It always looks different, depending on the light, the sky. I always see something slightly different, if I am paying attention.

At sunset. I see the stark line of the roof against the brilliant sky. The mill looks a bit foreboding and overly dramatic.
Light behind the mill. I see the lines of the trim. I fret about the encroaching shrubs on the integrity of the building. The mill seems more vulnerable.

Midday autumn light. The mill is revealed in a soft, pleasing way. The texture of the siding, the lovely blend of fall colors against the dark green trim. All is well.

Same mill, same camera, same photographer. Just different light and time of day. (As well as how the mill is framed.)

Light is amazing. It reveals and illuminates our life. I am so thankful that we do not have to live in darkness.

“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.” -Isaiah 9:2

If you need a change in your life, if you need to see things differently and more clearly, you need the Light. The Light that illuminates all. The Light that reveals. The Light that makes all things beautiful.

 “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

Call out to Him. Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. And you will be saved. His Light will make you beautiful and illuminated in ways you can never imagine.

The Last Mill in Barbados

DSCN0998

Barbados has one of the two remaining restored sugar mills in the Caribbean, the Morgan Lewis Windmill.  Built 250 years ago, it is a sight to see.  We live beside an old flour mill here at home, so it’s always fascinating to me to see other mills.  If you’re on the fence about visiting Barbados someday, jump over…it’s a great island!  🙂  Have a wonderful Monday, and may God give you the energy you need to move through your day.  Blessings, Lisa
