Summer isn’t complete without catching fireflies …
… and then letting them go.
I honestly believe that things like these simple bugs that glow in the dark were made purely for our enjoyment. They add a little magic into our evenings, don’t they?
And I see them as a reminder in this dark world that we live in… “Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matt. 5:16)
Let your light shine! Instead of wondering why there is so much evil in the world, let us instead wonder why is there so much goodness? For God’s love is all around us. We only have to open our eyes. Those starving children? There is food to feed them. We need only share. Those orphans? There are arms to hold them. We need only to open our doors. Those that are homeless? There is shelter. We need only to give. We are the hands and feet of God. So let us not question his goodness in this dark world. For He is good. There is no question about that! And His love is all around. We need only to open our eyes.
