The woods behind my house drop off steeply to form a creek at the bottom. As I walked back to the house this morning the sun was just breaking into the woods (picture), although it had risen well over an hour earlier. It occurred to me that we come to find the light of the Son at different times in our life. For some He rises at a young age to reach us...for others we may be years down the road of life before His light breaks into our lives. There is sunrise and there is Son-rise. When the light breaks into our personal woods it transforms everything and a forest becomes a sanctuary.
John 1:4The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and his life brought light to everyone.
