While my boys played outside a few weeks back, I noticed this leaf sitting alone in the grass with the sunlight shining beautifully through it. There were of course hundreds of other leaves on the grass, but it was this one that caught my eye, for the light that filled it. This is so very much like how we should be. Filled with Jesus’ light, standing out from the darkness, drawing others in to his love.
I only had a moment to lay on the gravel driveway and capture a few photos of that leaf, before yet again, the dog thought it would be fun to jump on me. So, back to playing it was…
Remember THIS photo of Gage, Kaden and Bosley? As they played in this same exact spot, I couldn’t help but think of it. And when I snapped the next image, I smiled at the similarities, but had to laugh at the glaring difference, too. Crazy puppy Charlie, compared to calm, old-man Bosley. Love.
Back to the leaf…
There is a reason “This Little Light of Mine” is a song we learn as young children. We are to let that light shine, but as we get older we sometimes conform to the world and forget to stand out rather than blend in.
This Christmas season, and all throughout the year, I pray that I, my husband, my boys, and YOU can stand out from the crowd because Jesus’ unmistakable light is beautifully shining through us. When they are drawn to that light, they are drawn to Him. And as a result, He is given the great glory that only He deserves.
