Morning light

"Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun." (Ecclesiastes 11:7)

One morning recently the air was misty for several hours before the sun really shone brightly. When it began to do so, the sun's rays pierced through the mist and the trees in our back yard in a way that was really beautiful. I attempted to take a few pictures to capture the beauty, but felt that I failed miserably. (In addition, the second-floor clothesline is showing in every one of the photos!) I want to post the photos even though they are not the greatest, and decided to caption them with some Bible verses about light.

"For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." (2 Corinthians 4:6)

"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light." (Ephesians 5:8)

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people: that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." (1 Peter 2:9)

I think the last photo is my favorite because it shows the garden, too. A good reminder for me that I need to be growing spiritually and showing the fruit of the spirit as I seek to "show forth the praises of Him who has called me out of darkness into His marvelous light"!

Linda!

It is so good to see you here! Things are going fine... my mom did pass away in January, but actually it was a blessing. Still plenty going on in my life, but God is good.

Thanks for the sweet words about my photos. I was disappointed in them, but they did sort of capture the moment.

Hope all is well with you! I still miss the Seasonal Delights forum, don't you?

God bless,
Mrs.T
