" I thought about this since it has gotten dark in the mornings here. During the summer I've not needed my trusty little flashlight to get all our shop buildings opened up. Now that it is dark it's an absolute necessity. Period. I finally put new batteries in. The old ones were used up and it was flickering off and on. I had trouble finding my way around in the dark. This reminded me of how some scholars describe that verse. They see it as a shepherd coming down the side of a treacherous hill where they use their oil lamp to show the way for them and their sheep who follow. They also tell us that shepherds would tie a lamp onto their leg to give them additional light. One light for the direction and another for the next step. I know I've shared that before but my little flashlight always serves as a visual aid in reminding me of my need to have the light of His word in my life. It will give us step by step guidance as well as helping to keep us going in the right direction. Okay. I think that will do it for this day. Take care now. You hear? May God add His blessings to our day. Amen. .....More later.
