We Can Work Wonders
The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. ~C. S. Lewis
Our home, which I affectionately call "Little House in the Big Woods," tends to be rather dark. This is especially true in summer when the trees are fully leafed, shading us from the heat and light of the sun. That being said, it's rare for my husband, Danny, and I not to have lights on during the day, especially in the area where our computers are.
Even when the lights are on, however, seeing into our cupboards, especially on gloomy days, becomes downright frustrating. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I've had to fetch a flashlight to find the object I'm seeking in a cabinet or under the sink.
Finally, as fed up as I, Danny decides to do something about it. He searches online for small, rechargeable, LED lights with motion sensors that he can install in some of the darker recesses in our kitchen and bathroom. Aren't these cute little guys?
And what an incredible difference they make!
Best of all, because they are motion sensitive, the lights stay on only while you are rummaging around, turning themselves off when activity ceases. As Danny loves to save on energy costs, this works perfectly for us.
These lights may be small, but they work wonders.
We, too, may be small, but when we welcome Jesus, the Light of the World, into our lives, we can shine His bright and marvelous light into this dark and fallen world. A world in desperate need of God's forgiveness, love, redemption, and grace.
We can, with God's help, work wonders.
