The moon. I love it. It lights up my yard when the night is clear and the moon full or near full. My camera can't do it justice, but even with my limited camera and the moon so far away, I can still see it.

Of course we know it's the light reflected from the sun. On Wikipedia it said the moons natural reflection is that of coal. No, this is not a science lesson, but I thought that fact was interesting. Coal doesn't reflect.

"For God Who said, 'Let light shine out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts, so as (to beam forth) the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God (as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed) in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah)." 2 Corinthians 4:6 (Amplified)

Alright, is there a "Sonbeam" of God on my face? Can people see the God-shine of my soul? I know some days my reflection appears like charcoal camouflage.

My desire is that The light in my heart reflect on my daily living too.

Shine on, shine on Harvest moon.

Shine on my friend. Let's reflect the Son and light up the world.

Jeanette Levellie said...

Yes, you do reflect His light and glory, Karen. In your writing, your parenting and grandparenting, and your photos. I love your heart of sharing His gifts.

Wikipedia is unreliable as a source of accurate info, eh?

Johnnie said...

"charcoal camouflage" -- inspired pairing of words that just shows why you're such a wonderful writer. And yes, God shines within you and through you.

Karen said...

Hey, Diane, I know it is, I can read the glow in your words.

Jeanie, thanks-one day I'm gonna get one of those fancy camera's --then I'll have to take a class to figure out how to use it.:)

Parsley, amen.

Jeanette, oops I hope that info is correct...thanks you, your words are so sweet.

Johnnie, wow, inspired words made me smile. You are a dear friend.

i adore God's gift: the moon's light.
it has a glow that the sun doesn't.
it shines in the darkness.
it illuminates the way.

thank you for the Scripture!
