“What sunshine is to flowers; smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.” ― Joseph Addison
“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder
“Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. [He made] the stars also.” (Genesis 1:14-16)
Perhaps we are all familiar with Matthew 5:13-15, but verses 14-15 should marinate in our minds. “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light an amp and put it under bowl, instead put it on its stand to give light to everyone in the house.” The world is a dark house that need us to shine and dim ungodliness.
I wish for knowledge to create a Bible remote control, stand on the highest mountain in the world and point it simultaneously on adults gone wild on all continents. It comes a time to settle down, enjoy family and true friends, be positive examples, enjoy life with a smile shining bright like the sunlight to see the SON Light and follow God’s commandments.
