I have asked a few friends to drop by and add a little light and warmth to this space while I soak up sunshine with my family the next couple of weeks. Megan from Contented Sparrow is literally bringing light today. I do hope that you'll wander over to her place--there is so, so much beauty there. If you ended up brewing another pot tea--or even a whole pot--and hanging out there all afternoon, you will thank me. It's a wonderful, beautiful, spirit-filled place to be.
Hi there. I pray this finds you well today. I'm Megan and I have an eclectic little blog called Contented Sparrow. Eclectic is my vague way of saying that I can't really pin down what my blog is really about. It's just bits and pieces of me, the work of my hands and heart, and some of what I learn from God along the way. I've admitted over there before that while capturing moments and color and light with my camera comes naturally to me, writing does not. That's why it was with great trepidation that I agreed to write up a little post for dear Elizabeth while she would be away on her lovely vacation. Sorry, y'all, I'm no Mrs. Foss! I have no insightful words of my own to offer you today. I'm pulling my wisdom straight from God's Word! Because we're celebrating the Light of the World born in Bethlehem those years ago, the Light that leads us now, let's remind ourselves of what HE said about light.....
And, a prayer by John Baillie that praises our Bright Morning Star, words that cause me to still, breathe, and my soul to rise to Him. My prayer for you today, too.
O Lord and Maker of all things, for whose creative power the first light came forth, who didst look upon the world's first morning and see that it was good, I praise Thee for this light that now streams through my windows to rouse me to the life of another day.
