Glow Forth!

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.            
 
     ~ Ansel Adams
 

17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.

     ~ Ephesians 3:17-19

 

I attended a retirement dinner last night.  When I got up to read my tributes for the two retirees, I noticed a look.  It seemed everyone had it.  As I gazed out over the audience, I knew that the glow had little to do with me, it had everything to do with the collective love that was focused on the two amazing women who were being honored.  It is the kind of glow that one sees when the beloved is the focus.

I have seen that glow in church services, during sermons, during the Academy Awards, and on you as you shine the love that God has given you into the world.

Today, glow forth.  Let what the photographer catches be your glow, because the photographer loves you so.

 

Because of Him,

Linda
