Tuesday Mornings

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 1John 1:5

This morning at breakfast my husband read this verse out loud to us. I found it to be a timely and sweet reminder of the Lord's Holiness and his presence with us always.

Last week my child, who will be 18 months old later this month, discovered his shadow for the first time. He has moved from just being bothered to being very agitated to being down right terrorized. He has fussed. He has shaken his finger. He screams and that shadow just will not leave him alone. Yesterday that mean old dark shadow stopped him right in his tracks, he screamed bloody murder and refused to move until I came back to get him. I gave him the usual speeches, "that's just your shadow baby, look mommy has one too" and "now don't be afraid, Jesus doesn't want you to be afraid". You get the picture. Imagine me standing on my front sidewalk, doing a little dance, showing how my shadow moves when I move etc etc.

He was unconvinced. We will continue to work on it.

Meanwhile, I will keep in mind this week that the AlMighty, Holy Creator is Ever present and the light He casts has no dark side.

  2. Your post made me smile with memories of almost the same when Andrea discovered her shadow. I enjoy reading your experiences it makes me pause and remember those precious times.
