Light

“You are all children of the light, children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.”  1 Thessalonians 5:5 (NIV) Imagine walking through an unfamiliar dark house? Imagine walking through a dense forest at night when clouds blanket the sky hiding the stars and moonlight. For me, both situations would bring fear and anxiety, especially if I weren’t holding a lantern or some source of light. Darkness is often a descriptor for depression. Whether you are the caregiver, the one suffering, or a concerned friend of someone who struggles, you have most likely felt …

The Light

We have a security light on Danny’s shop out back. It is probably the brightest security light I’ve ever seen. So bright in fact that when something trips the light our bedroom is flooded with light. At first it concerned me because I wondered what on earth was out there? It’s so bright you cannot see anything when you look out. Now I just know that when the light is tripped our place is flooded with light and that’s a real comfort. Oh beloved, whenever you need protection, God is the Light. Whenever you need to see into the darkness …

Encounter Light in the Darkness

I woke up in the night and as I customarily do I took a look outside our bedroom window. It was so moonlit that everything was clearly seen. It was almost as bright a daylight. We had seen the moon rising as we came home earlier in the evening, but I had no idea just how bright and clear it would all be in the middle of the night. I’ll be the first to admit I don’t understand everything that I encounter in my life. Some things are especially hard to deal with. But as I focus on His light …

What Do You Want for Christmas?

  Danny asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I was hard pressed to think of anything. While I was thinking about it, he said I don’t want a thing. I’ve got what I want. That’s how I feel too. Now there will probably be something under the tree, but we received so much this year and we are very grateful to still have one another. Oh beloved, what are you longing for this Christmas? Do you have a list ready? Are you frantically hoping your list gets filled? Maybe you’re hopeless. Nothing has ever turned out right on Christmas …
