AND GOD SAID, “LET THERE BE LIGHT”
1/5/2007

A few years ago I started collecting lighthouses, and with the help of family and friends I now have lighthouses of all sorts in every room of my house. I have framed pictures, photographs, pencil drawings, sculptures, and several figurines that range in height of just a few inches to about three feet. Outside the house in my back yard I have five wooden bird feeders that are lighthouses and several solar powered lighthouses in both my back and front yard. But, the one I favor the most is my seven-foot stone lighthouse yard light that sits in the middle of my front yard.

Hanging on the underside of the platform that holds the iron rail around the dome of the light I have hung lighthouse wind chimes. Every night I turn on the light just before it starts to get dark. As the sun sets, and the light from the lighthouse gradually gets brighter, it causes me to remember God’s promises of safety in and over my life. If there happens to be a breeze in the air, the soft clinging sound of the wind chimes adds music to the moment and my thoughts turn into worship.

Recently, I had an unusually busy week. By Friday I was exhausted and went to bed early. That night I had a dream that all of the wind chimes on my lighthouse went missing. I felt a sinking feeling of missing the beautiful sounds that had become a part of my source of comfort and moments of worship.

But, Saturday morning, I was able to put the dream aside because much to my delight when I woke up all of my wind chimes were still in place. I did, however remember the sorrow I had felt during the dream. So, I took a long deep breath, sighed, and just let the sadness roll of my back with the peace of knowing God was taking care of me.

Later on that day, my nephew, whom I hadn’t seen in some time, called to say he had a little gift for me and that he was on his way over. The gift was a brand new lighthouse wind chime. As I was rejoicing over the gift, God spoke to my heart and said, “The provision of my Light to you will never go away.” And with that thought came the comfort of knowing I will always be able to find His source of Light and worship Him freely.
