A couple of weeks ago this scene
caught my eye.
What can appear unremarkable under other circumstances
becomes simply stunning when the light
shines on it.
Some things are less attractive when fully lit.
A few restaurants I know must live by that rule.
But, other things are beautifully transparent
when the light streams through.
I hope that I'm the kind that can stand up to the light.
This guy caught my eye on the same day.
Growing under our trees
with a funny little face.
Love the contrast and details.
Kind of looks like a UFO from this perspective.
We took some neighbor friends to see Sight and Sound's
Miracle of Christmas.
Afterward Warren was showing them around "Heaven".
This is my reminder to us today to
Keep looking UP!
Be as transparent as we can be.
Seek out the light and allow it to shine through us
so that others are attracted to the source.
These are very busy days for most of us.
I have multiple BIG deadlines happening over the next 6 weeks.
In all transparency I will tell you that I often wake stressed
and worried these days.
But God meets me in that stress and helps me to
resist the temptation to panic
about many real and terrifying possibilities
for our kids, my work and our health.
My prayer is that the light will be more powerful than
That it will push aside the worries and doubt
And because I know the source of the light
I know beyond a doubt that the light wins!
