Shining Like the Moon

I'm a mix between a city & country girl. I love the city lights. However, I love to be away from all the lights and have the only light be from the light of the moon. Lots of people talk about watching the sun rise over the ocean. While I enjoy the beauty of the sunrise, I'm a little opposite of most people. I like to watch the moon dance on the ocean.

There's a line from the song, "Shine," by Salvador that says, "I want to shine like the moon a reflection of You." As I sat and pondered this line, I realized what a beautiful symbol the moon is of what our lives, as Christians, should look like. The moon is merely reflecting the light from the sun. Just like we should be reflecting The Son!

Proverbs 27:19 "As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects man."

Break Is Over

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I had several months where I was moving and allowing God to do some work in my own heart and life. I'm back now; and hopefully, I will be posting a lot more frequently.

Did You Just Need a Doughnut Reaallll Bad?!?!

It's taken me some time to be able to write about this incident, but here goes...

They say most accidents happen less than a mile from home. Well, this was true for me. I had left home stopped at QT to get gas before making my long trek from my home (north of Atlanta) to my office (south of Atlanta). After leaving QT I made my way back out onto the road. I was first in line at the traffic light. I saw the police cruiser pull up to the U-turn lane on the opposite side of the road. The thought popped in my head, "He is going to flip his lights on just as the light turns green, so he can go without waiting on the line of traffic behind me." Now, I thought this, but I didn't think it would really happen! Well, the light turned green and sure enough he flipped on his lights to make his u-turn. So, what's a girl to do? She has to yield to the flashing blue lights!!!! Just as sure as I stopped to allow this police officer to make his u-turn, I was rear-ended by the car behind me!

The nice little police officer that just HAD to make that u-turn saw the accident happen, so he stopped to write up the police report. It took everything within me not to say to him, "So, you really weren't turning your lights on to go on a call?! What?! You just couldn't wait another second longer to get to the Dunkin D0nuts?!" I refrained and was on my merry little way in no time...just with a dent in the back bumper!

So, here's my life lesson: When a police cruiser pulls up to a traffic light be prepared for the lights to go on. You may think he's got a call to answer, but it's really just the call of the doughnut! I'm just sayin...
