From Darkness to Light…

Have you ever watched a Kansas sunrise?  (well it could be anywhere, but I’m biased…I think A Kansas sunrise is exceptionally beautiful).

    In minutes, you see the sky go from total darkness to hues of pink and orange, then some soft blue with billowing clouds of white overhead.  It’s beautiful, it’s amazing.  And finally…full day light.

    During those moments that the world around me changes from dark to light, I feel such a sense of peace…crickets chirping, birds beginning to sing their morning song, cool breeze and a glorious sunrise.  A new day, a new beginning. No matter what happened yesterday, I can begin anew each day.
    I think this is how it is with God’s light. Until today I’ve always seen His light like a bright bulb, hit the switch and you have light.  “In him there is no darkness”.

    But today I’ve changed my mind.  Today I’ve watched the sun rise. I’ve watched His version of darkness to light.   I believe that God’s light is like a Kansas sunrise…gently filling the sky.  Not abrupt like a light bulb.  And don’t you suppose that is how He wants us to spread His light…not being pushy or overwhelming, but spreading it gently and peacefully, little by little.  

    1 Peter 2:9. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

    About 49andcounting

    Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
