Shine Your Light
After days of rain, drizzle, and gray clouds, we have blue sky and sunshine at my house on this Southern-Fried Friday. Add warmer temperatures and spring blooms to the menu, and I welcome the change from dreary weather and news. As a tiny way to bring a little light to these hard times, I chose two of the prettiest photographs I use when giving my Great Smoky Mountains National Park seminar and posted them, one last week and another today. Both of them reassure me of the light and beauty we will see at the end of this virus season. A bright result already apparent is the extra kindness and help people are giving to others.
During all times may we remember the ultimate light is present, providing us love and assurance. Isaiah 60:1-2 says, “Arise, my people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you. Darkness as black as night shall cover all the peoples of the earth, but the glory of the Lord will shine from you.”
What acts of kindness and help for others are you doing, seeing, or hearing about recently?
