As we were gathering our shoes and dogs leashes this past Monday we looked out to see that it had rained and it was still wet. We were excited to go out in the cool air. The streetlights are still on because it’s still dark at 5:30 am. As we were walking one of our routes I can see sparkle all over the ground. When something sparkles its sure does catch my eye! I thought how beautiful the rain makes everything look! Then I thought what is causing the sparkle? And what is sparkling? As we looked closely it was all the little and big leaves on the floor. It's fall so we have more leaves than usually.
I got excited because I remembered bible verses of water. Then I thought its not just water that is causing this shine and sparkle on a leaf that is dull and fallen to the ground! It's also the moonlight and the streetlights! I was in awe because combined together the leaves shine like diamonds!
How beautiful that He has given us water and light! We can not be hidden! Oh no we can't not even in the dark! As you pray and start out your day remember our words, our actions, glorify and reflect our Father in Heaven.
Jesus answered and said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven
Shine and Sparkle! Have a blessed week!
