master of life in earth, sky and sea

…and the adventure begins, the most exciting and fulfilling journey imaginable

Throw your light forward

Ran across this photo and then identified this one quote in Christa’s blog – http://www.carryitforward.com/tag/whittier/.

There is a saying, worded in all sorts of ways and sometimes attributed to Dwight L. Moody, that goes something like this – Lighthouses don’t go searching for the ships, they just beam their light from where they stand. No matter how you say it, it is very true. We sometimes think it is so complicated, finding our calling in life. And we can make it so, even in a well-intentioned way. But if we all do our work, if we keep our wick at a reasonable height, if we take the time and the elbow grease to go out and clean our windows really well once, then spend a little time every day doing whatever it takes to keep them that way, our light will shine clearly and brightly. We become beacons of good for each other. We light up the room, our lives and our world.

A great description for sure, and we know from the Bible that it identifies itself as a light shining in a dark place.
