Dec. 5th “The Lights Coming; How You Shining?”
"We’re living in a dark, dark world and it seems that the darkness is taking us over. Just like paintings that need light to be seen and be appreciated and make a difference. We need that light as well. Ever try to look at a painting in the dark? That’s not happening. Turn the light on and you’ve got a whole new story. Ever notice how different things are in the light? Ever notice when the light’s on there is no darkness.
Each day with people out of work, children suffering, murder, rape, abuse, hunger, homelessness, sickness, tragedy, natural disaster, relationship issues, marital divorce, government officials being investigated, corruption, pollution, and on and on, darkness is in the news and overwhelming us. People are negative and not positive. People have lost hope.
In a world where this is the norm, there are those who have hope! There are those who know the truth. There are those who no matter what others do to them; what they call them, how they injure them or how they desert them, they live above this. They know the light, live in the light and their hope is that eternal light.
Even these have times when they ask the world or the darkness about direction and input. While they don’t even see the darkness in what they are doing, they make choices that will affect them and their children for a lifetime. In that momentary weakness they poll the darkness instead of coming to the light and before you know it their light has dimmed.
If you want the light, ask to find the light. If you want the light to lead and guide you don’t ask the darkness. If you want to return to the light because the darkness has changed you, seek the light with all your heart.
The “Light” is here and He came over 2000 years ago. It’s December. Let us remember why this month is really special … “I am the light of the world!"
“There are none so blind as those who cannot see
Living a life where people’s judgment makes you free
Yet you’ve taken the position of the world as fact
Claimed it as your own, now there’s no turning back
You’ve not fed your eyes with the truth reality told
The consequences come for those of yours young and old!”
“Paintings light up the hearts and souls of men, motivating them throughout life. Find great paintings that move you. Enjoy your week and remember, the Light will keep you from darkness!”
"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
