“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” ~George Byron

I wish I could show you, when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being. ~Hafiz
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
I was in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on Lake Michigan when I took this photo. It was in the late afternoon and the sky had darkened as if a storm was coming. Quietly the sky opened, and the rays of the sun slipped through, sliding down and splashing onto the calm lake, spreading the light to everyone.
I was very inspired by this scene. After taking my photo, I sat and watched the clouds for a few more minutes, as they shifted and changed, the light moving and changing its position on the water.
I thought how dark it had been, and in an instant there was light reaching toward the earth. It reminded me of an old song: “You’ll Never Walk Alone” : “Don’t be afraid of the dark, at the end of the storm, there’s a golden sky, and the sweet silver song of the lark..”
I love this quote:
Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light. ~Norman B. Rice
With this week’s Water Dragon Sunday posts, may we spread the light from blog to blog, all around the world….
If there is a spot of sun spilling onto the floor, a cat will find it and soak it up. J.A. McIntosh
Here is Panda, warm and cozy during her nap. She’s just a wee kitten, but she knows the value of the sun already. 😉
Shhhhhh.. we’ll be quiet so she can keep sleeping!
Thanks for stopping by~ Good night!
