Tuesday's Gifts ~ Light

Here from the very Beginning of time.

For our benefit. So we can become time keepers.

Alpha and Omega

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. 17 God set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. ~Genesis 1:14-18

So we remember His Power.

His Protection. His Encompassing, Covering Love.

Trinity Lights

 16 Yours is the day, yours also the night;
    you established the luminaries and the sun. ~Psalm 74:16

Enduring forever. 

Sunrise, Sunset. 

Sunrise, Sunset.

Warm Embrace

 7 who made the great lights,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
the sun to rule over the day,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;
the moon and stars to rule over the night,
    for his steadfast love endures forever;

~Psalm 136: 7-9

In the End, we will Be Again. 

We will then Shine like the sun.

El Fin
43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let anyone with ears listen! ~Matthew 13:43
 And Our LORD will be all the Light we need.

23 And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb. ~Revelation 21:23
Always Blessed,

  1. Gretchen, What can I say? This gives me goosebumps! It is just a small reflection of the GLORY of our Lord Jesus and one of His many facets! Excellent encouragement to me today :)
    Also, as we follow along with Jesus' last week before going to His Father, I am so thankful we don't get what we deserve! It is all for His namesake and ultimate glory! Oh, what a wonderful Savior we have! May you have a blessed Resurrection celebration with your loved ones!

    1. Thank you so very much Jacqueline! Blessings to you as well!
