"Light obeyed increases light.
Light rejected bringeth night."
Our nation is at a time that bringeth night.
One of the delights of seeing the Lincoln and Jefferson monuments on the Capital Mall by night,
under a full moon, was seeing fireflies.  The illumination  of these statues and their pillars and steps showed them in their  majesty as in the presence of greatness, but the flickering insects peeking in and out of darkness were like sparklers while watching a spectacular fireworks display.  Fireflies appear like tiny stars winking in the darkness.  Actually, fireflies were my childhood playmates, and it was a reunion.

We also went to the Luray Caverns near Shenandoah Valley National Park.  Weddings can be held in its depths.  It even has a "Stalacpipe" Organ that plays "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" on the different formations.  It was quite a walk, but at one point we paused, gathered into a huddle before the lights were turned out.  Utter darkness.  I'm one of those people who likes light, wants light, needs light, as in many windows with the blinds open and walls, if not white, very light.  Darkness is not my thing.  I am not afraid, but long for the light.


"...God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all...but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin."  I John 1:5, 7
 In this dark ol' world
I may not be a sunbeam,
but I'll be a firefly for Him
