When The Sun Shines

When the sun shines
on a winter day in Ohio
you take note.
I'm not complaining
but there it is,
Winters in Ohio are Grey.

This afternoon the sun 
burst through the clouds 
and my heart sang.
 I grabbed my camera...uh, phone...
and started clicking, capturing random patches of light around the house.
I reveled in the bright rays 
contrasting with dark shadows
and the imagery took me to the 
One Who Is Light.

This is the result when the sun shines.....

"... I am the light of the world. 
whoever follows me 
will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." John 8:12

"Every good and perfect gift
is from above,
coming down from
 the Father of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change
 like shifting shadows." James 1:17

"But ye 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." I Peter 2:9

"Your eye is the lamp of your body.
When your eyes are healthy,
your whole body also is full of light.
But when they are unhealthy,
your body also is full of darkness.
See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness." Luke 11:34-35

"The light shines in darkness,
And the darkness has not 
overcome it." John 1:5

"The unfolding of your words
gives light.
It gives understanding
to the simple." Psalm 119:130

"... God is light;
in Him there is 
no darkness at all." 
I John 1:5

May your week be filled with light!

I love the trailer full of Little People and the verse below it. I'd like to see it in a print, somehow. The imagery of God as the leader, His chosen people in His wagon, cheerfully going wherever it is He's taking them. Except, ahem, God in a pink dress???

I love that one too. But, yeah, the pink dress might pose a problem ��

This is such a refreshing post. I am intrigued with the way the light creates a different perspective on the ordinary in the photos. Thank you for sharing.

Bethany Eicher said...

Yes. I was intrigued by that too!
