Children of Light

Do small things entertain you ?

I find much pleasure in contemplating the details of God’s amazing creation. Thus, I am rarely bored.

One of the things that fascinates me the most is light.

Today I have been enjoying the light coming through my window, and reflecting on my water glass. The light has created some beautiful shadows.

Drinking water from a lovely glass motivates me to stay well-hydrated.

In Ephesians 5:8, we are encouraged to walk as children of light.

May our Lord give us the grace to continue to shine as lights in the darkness.

      1. Yes, there is. I am always looking at the different shapes and contours on the mountains where I love, even although I’ve been looking at the same mountain ranges for years. They never cease to intrigue me!

  1. I thought I was the only one who loved water, glass, and light! I’ll often pour myself a glass of water and tear up at the beauty of light playing on/in it. Thank you for posting this!

  2. I think you are very much a person of the moment, which I think is a wonderful characteristic. Too often I observe myself already thinking about the next things I am planning to do or working in my mind already on something. I like it better when I am with my son or wife and catching the moments, bird songs, nuances of colour. That reminds me of a special moment yesterday, I was taking a picture of my son and a hummingbird flew about 2 feet from my face, I was surprised and pleased. It was really cool, my red jacket must have attracted him. I had my camera already in my hand, I wish I had had the presence of mind to take a picture but it was too quick.

    1. Hi Dave – That sounds beautiful to see a hummingbird while taking a picture of your son.
      I have trained myself over the years to live in the moment. There is beauty there, and that is where God meets us, in the present.
      Yes, spending time with your wife or son, bird songs, and nuances of colour are wonderful. God is constantly longing to shower his beloved with blessings πŸ€—

  3. I remember when I was in college and engaged, I would sit in the sunshine at the window and find myself distracted by the little prisms of light on the wall from my engagement ring. My thoughts would wander to the future, and … so much for studying. πŸ˜‰
    It’s funny how people will spend thousands of dollars on diamonds, when you can get the same beautiful sparkle from sunlight and water.

    1. Such a nice memory of being engaged, and having happy thoughts of the future.
      Yes, sunlight and water can create great beauty.
      May God always make us aware of the natural beauty all around us. πŸ€—

  4. 2Cor. 4:6. β€œFor God, who said, β€˜Let light shine out of darkness,’ made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” Such is the shared treasure of God. Bless you for sharing yours! πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ’‘β€οΈ

  5. Yes Sally! That photo is a prime example of God’s creation at work constantly in our lives! Light and Water are the two most important components to life and God’s Holy Spirit brought forth life from the dark empty firmament! Also, you gave a beautiful example of how Light and Shadow complement each other in photography and any serious cinematographer is always keeping a keen eye to both of these contrasting aspects in the scene to film the image frames POV in the most beneficial way to translate the story being told; with these two primary components of the image. Lovely shot there and it helped break me away from a deep writing project I’m stuck in today; so much to research and decide what follows that common thread of the story. I needed this splash of water and light in my face!!! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ˜‰ πŸ™

      1. πŸ€— Of course you’re welcome Sally! Thank you for offering up such a pleasant posting which for me had hit the spot; and I’m always glad to spend some time on your enjoyable and helpful blog posts! Hope you’re having a very nice evening!

      2. Hi Lawrence ! We have had a magnificent twilight here. Because we are so far North, evening twilights are long, as the Sun’s rays are still reflected in the sky.
        Thanks again for your insightful comments.πŸ€—

      3. Hi again Sally! I’m just about to call it a day, as I only had about 5 hours of sleep last night and feeling a bit woozier than I should for this time of night! That must a special sight for you there; as a matter of fact you have many unique and not typical sights and sounds up your way punctuated by quiet! A bit surreal! Your twilight is great I’m sure, and your golden hour just before sunset or the magic hour just after the sunlight drops down over the horizon makes for some great shots I bet up there! At that point the light is a bit redder and the natural light will balance with street lights or other such artificial light sources. Have a nice restful night and see you tomorrow most likely!
        God Bless.
