Christmas is the holiday of lights. Lit trees in almost every home, houses lit with hundreds and thousands of lights. City streets and malls lit for Christmas as well. It must be a sight from our satellite’s in space. We all love the beauty and the celebration that Christmas brings. I for years have looked through the lens with the Lord and the lights to me are a reminder that we are the Light of the world if we have given our lives to the Lord. We are His and we should always let our lights shine, so that others may see our good works and give glory to our Father which is in Heaven. Shine all of the time! I recently met a man while having my Chemo treatment. A very sweet man. We were in recliners side by side hooked up to our I.V.’s. We of course discussed our cancer, and both shared that we were stage 4 terminal. In our conversation he asked me if I ever felt sad? I said of course its a feeling that I fight. He asked,” how do you fight it”. I then told Him that, scripture says, God will not give us more than we can take. He must know that I can take it. So I am trying to be the best at having cancer that I can be to give Glory to God because he is taking care of me and holding me on this journey. ” Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able.” For me the temptation is to give in to fear and sadness. The scripture goes on to say, “but with the temptation, He will make a way of escape , that we may be able to bear it.” And He does!! So I let my light shine and be the best I can be with His help to walk through this cancer. My new friend was blessed, and found a new way to think of his temptation of sadness. I pray that He has found the way of escape that we are promised. Always let your light shine, we are to go into those dark places and light things up with our countenance, Gods word, our word, our joy and hope.
This photo was taken on the Sea of Cortez in Kino Bay, Mexico. My Dad was retired there for many years.
My desire is to share my photography, to honor the Lord, and send out His word to all who might read. My photo's will include a scripture,and I write a devotional for each entry. The very least that I can do for our precious Lord Jesus. I am a wife to Jerry, my wonderful husband. We have 5 children, and 7 granchildren.
