The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas

The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas
We are all like sea shells tossed about in rough waters and being re-shaped in wondrous ways. But have you ever contemplated the notion that sea shells have to complete their journey through the rough waters before they get to rest on the shore? Yeah, we are ALL like sea shells and Heaven is The Great Shore.

Let's Talk Lighthouses


Greetings Everybody,


Let's Talk Lighthouses...I LOVE LIGHTHOUSES!!!

The Ponce DeLeon Lighthouse in Daytona Florida...the tallest lighthouse in the state.
And yes...we did climb each step of that spiral staircase to the top.
The St. Augustine Lighthouse in Florida.
And yes we climbed each step of this one too.
And yes I was downing Arthritis Strength Tylenol after climbing 2 lighthouses in 2 consecutive days.
Taken  while we were on a Ferry headed to the Cape Lookout Lighthouse in the Carolina Outer Banks.

I Believe That There is Great Symbolism in Lighthouses:
-they Light the way for others
-they Point the way to the safe areas
-they Shine light on the hazardous places
-they are Sentinels that actively Wage War against the darkness


Christians (and Christian Teachers) are supposed to be like Lighthouses.


We are called to be steadfast and trustworthy and to fight against The Darkness.


Shine on folks, SHINE ON!

In Him,
Grace

In Him,
Grace
