You are the Colors . . .

“You are all the colors in one, at full brightness.” Jennifer Niven

What shines bright in your life right now? "For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.” (2 Cor. 4:6 NLT) So for Terry and me, it is our Lord.

He lights the way every single day. When I was younger I depended on Him moment by moment between marriage, college and three children. The craziness of motherhood is enough to knock the light out at times, but when those moments of rocking a little one to sleep for afternoon nap, or setting their favorite dinner down in front of them and they squeal with delight... the light of God beams through the room and our lives. There are many ways to share God's light:

  • Praying

  • Encouragement

  • Smiling

  • Holding hands

  • Hugging

  • Sharing

  • Speaking the Truth

  • Sharing His word.

  • Reading together

  • Singing

  • Going for a walk together

  • Calling a friend

  • Meditating

As I am now in my mid sixties, I grow closer to Him through the light, as well as through the storms. I am weathered through the years and I know

"And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain." 2 Samuel 23:4
