Quote – Shine!

” “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:15-16 (The Message)


My interpretation: Shine like morning sunshine on forsythia!

    and forsythia does seem like a light – I recall back in 2008 falling love with its early spring glow here in Virginia – it is one of the first colors after winter – then come other colors with the trees and all the flowers – but that burst of yellow was such a treat the first couple years – I still like it – but liked it more back then –
