Oh the beauty of flying into the city at night!

As my time away from home was coming to an end, I looked out the airplane window and just marveled at all the bright dotted lights filling the black night.  I saw traffic lights, car headlights, parking lot security lights, and even emergency flashing lights.

Multiple signs of life…portrayed through lights.

We can be those lights.  In this dark world, we can be the light.  Yes we can.  Every positive word can be a shining light.  Every kind act can be a shining light.  Every smile.  Every piece of encouragement to a hurting heart.  Every gift to a stranger.  Every visit to a lonely soul.

Every time we do something kind, we radiate light.  If we all do just one thing, collectively we can be just like those city lights in the dark of the night.

John 8:12 – When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Shine bright, my friends.  Shine bright.
