Shoot for the moon….
And even if you miss….
You will land with the stars!
Direct all in your life toward the light….Strive to be a reflection of the SON…be that fixed point of light that directs others home.
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light” 1 Peter 2:9
Thank you J a wonderful thought and Truth, it brought back memories…
When my dad was dying he called me to his side and he said be a Sunbeam for Jesus and shine I kissed him he closed his eyes and woke in Heaven.
Thank you – Love Anne
Oh Anne…your daddy must have been such a precious man! I love that image…a sunbeam for Jesus…and that you are. BLessings!
Yes, I too love that sunbeam (Sonbeam) characterization–and want very much to be that in the world. What I wanted to mention about this is that I have a piece of “wall art”, which I bought for myself because I loved it so much (and it was on sale!)–it says: “Reach for the moon–if you miss it, you will land among the stars”. Thank you, J, for everything you offer us here–God bless you abundantly!!
Isn’t that funny Caddo…the surgeon who was supposed to do my recent surgery (thank the Lord I didn’t need it) had this on his office wall. It really struck me…I want to reach for the moon everyday don’t you Caddo? And if we land among the stars…all those precious souls who are trying too…then that’s really ok because we are near enough to reflect our light and we are that much closer to home! God bless you!
Absolutely, J–Let’s go for it!!!!!! We have nothing to lose–our God will always catch us in His big strong loving hands, if we fall and go “boom”!
God’s wondrous light fills our souls when we open the windows to Him! Then we shine forth among the stars, indeed!
Yes and opening the windows to Him lets the breeze of the Holy Spirit in doesn’t it Granbee? Blessings!

God is good…in regards to your daddy. I will have to go look up the post you mentioned. I did truly enjoy the “Keeper of the Spring” Anne. The pictures too were incredible.
