Do we bring His LIGHT wherever we go?

Do we bring His LIGHT into the darkness about us…

To lead others home?

“It is too little, he says, for you to be my servant, to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and restore the survivors of Israel; I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.” Is 49:6

When I met Christ I felt like I had swallowed sunshine.” (E. Stanley Jones, +1973, Christian missionary)

“Rise up in splendor! Your light has come, the glory of the Lord shines uon you.  See, darkness covers the earth, and thick clouds cover the peoples; But upon you the Lord shines, and over you appears His glory….Then you shall be radiant at what you see, your heart shall throb and overflow.” Is 60:1-2,5a

A Reflection of the Son…


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 yous….

Thank you http://caddoveil.wordpress.com for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger Award. If you haven’t visited Caddoveil’s blog please do so…she has a true gift of painting words and making them dance. Thank you caddoveil. I thoroughly enjoy your gifted writings.

So….now I must pass share ten things you may not know about me and pass this award on…

1.  I like pelicans. They are a bit funny looking…almost like they received parts from several different birds. They also look a bit clumsy, but if you have ever seen a pelican glide on the wind they are incredibly graceful. It’s a lot like all of us. We are a bit clumsy but with God’s grace we can soar.

2.  I really wish the whole world would slow down a bit and stop and smell the roses. Why do we have to be in such a hurry?

3.  I enjoy painting…splashing vibrant colors on a canvas makes me smile inside and out.

4.  If I’m wearing pink lipstick I am refusing to allow the chronic pain I live in get the best of me.

5.  Shoes are terribly overrated…even though they are cute. Being barefoot is walking like a child.

6.  Many make fun of my southern drawl…but maybe it’s everyone else who talks a bit differently!

7.  I could sit and listen to people’s stories all day long…hidden in them it’s not so hard to see the hand of God.

8.  A chiming clock makes a house a home.

9.  Praise and worship can make a cloudy day sunny.

10.  I strive to do all for the praise of God’s glory…it is for His glory I say thank you for this award.

Please check out the blogs below…I think you will enjoy them.

For the praise and glory of His name, forever and ever, amen, I sincerely express thanksgiving to Kate, to poeticjourney, for the womanatthewell, and for all those who through their blogs keep their candles burning so others may come and find light in a world that in so many ways is in darkness.

I would like to pass on the Candle Lighter Award to




This light of faith that burns inside the heart

Bursts forth from within…

 in the shape of a smile.

The light of a smile brings a glow to the face…

and given away shares its love with another.

The light of a smile reflects the beauty within…

and given away affirms the dignity of another.

The light of a smile illumines the darkness…

and given away brings hope to the lost.

The light of a smile brings peace to the chaos…

and given away says, “God is good.”

The light of a smile declares, “I am loved”…

and given away becomes a witness to FAITH.

Smile today and let your light shine. Smile today and pass on the FAITH.

“Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Heavenly Father.”

Matt 5:16
