Dim but lovely

It was too late for photos, but not too late to walk tonight in the last of the light. I saw things, but could I record them as I saw them? Yes! It is  exciting to show things as I saw them. This leaf was barely visible, but the light quality is special in this time of low light.

John 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. 
John 9:5  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. 

It must have been moonglow, way up in the sky, it must have been moonglow, that led me straight to you. (moonglow by Rod Stewart) A lovely deep blue sky and a moon to draw our attention, framed by majestic leafless Valley Oaks. It was God's creation that led me to give him glory. It was Jesus who saved my life from death and darkness.

Isa 60:1  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. 
Isa 60:2  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. 
Isa 60:3  And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. 

I wanted to see again the trail as I experienced it this night. There is something special about low light. Too much light changes the mood entirely. This is a wonderful light.

Mat 10:27  What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 
Mat 10:28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 

There is a tiny light on the shore and a trail of light upon the river. It is a tiny light, but it offers hope and encouragement that I am on the right trail. As the world grows darker in sin. We must let our little light shine, to bring hope to others.

Mat 5:14  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 
Mat 5:15  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 
Mat 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
