I am reminded of thoughts on "light" that come to my mind, when I look at this
picture that I captured last week;
Recently, I awoke in the very early morning hours, finding that the electricity was
off in our area, and the house was totally dark. As I cautiously made my way to the kitchen
to retrieve my flashlight, each step was made slowly, feeling my way as I
walked. What a huge difference the flashlight made, when I pushed the "on" switch.
Light flooded the kitchen, making me realize just how much I depend on
light in my daily life. Each day the sun rises, and each day the earth is blessed with it's
life giving rays. It caused me to have a new appreciation for the "gift" of electricity.
Like everything, one only notices it's vital importance when it is gone.
It also led me to recall a verse I learned as a young girl;
"Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." Psalm 119: l05
I am so thankful for "light" in it's many various forms, in my daily life.
