Left the Light on...

“We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won't need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don't fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.”
Dwight L. Moody quotes (American Evangelist, 1837-1899)

Soon there will be a full moon filling up the night skies. Tonight, however, there is fog. And sentinels over a century old are still at work, aiding those at sea. The oil lamps are gone; solar power fuels them now. Towers are literally bringing sunlight to the night.

They are like church steeples to me. Monuments to Light; they are guiding and beckoning those in need. Reassuring to others who know their own path. I could write pages about their symbolism…but pictures are frequently worth a thousand words.

This is Wind Point Light near Racine, Wisconsin. It is a beautiful place, by day or night.

If you browse on over to another good source of Light, you’ll find Se’lah’s blog, Necessary Room, and you can also find out how to win a copy of this print!

Thank you for connecting with Se'Lah because that gave me the chance to meet you. I love lighthouses. In Denmark there are many and whenever I get the chance I visit one of them. I even have my own favorite one, it is Sletterhage fyr on the island of Helgenæs where I once lived. For me a lighthouse is a baken of hope. I am glad I found your blog and the fact that you like lighthouses too.

Hope you have a great weekend.

xoxo Elizabeth

Dear Se'Lah, I just left a note at your place; I can't thank you enough either!
Elizabeth from Denmark, the home of the Little Mermaid and "Tatiana's Palace". I have a friend here who has taught me much of your country, but never mentioned lighthouses. Thank you for another treasure to search for : )
