Like what? Like the torrential Bahamian downpour that pelted 2,000 of us for 45-minutes-going-on-45-years as we all tried to board the ship at the same time, in a panic to get out of the storm. The three women standing just behind us in line - all my mom's age and with my mom's tender heart - took their towels and stood quietly, sheltering our girls as they shivered in the storm. One of the women looked at me and whispered "These are the moments, honey. They feel unbearable, but they'll be unforgettable. I promise." Light. Perfectly placed right there in the middle of the "I can't believe this is happening to us" mommy meltdown. Then a message from a friend, saying she's thankful for our vacation. The vacation that we endured together - thankful for the chaos of our 8 kids whether they're fighting or smiling, and our friendship. Light. Perfectly placed right there in the middle of the "Never ever again" vacation hangover. Light shining out of darkness - maybe not crazy, life-altering darkness. But light perfectly placed, in a place that needed light.
I'm so thankful for the lights that God has placed along our path. The lights that help us see His face, and get a glimpse at what He is doing, when you otherwise feel stuck in a never ending downpour with four shivering short people that "really gotta pee". Thank God for His lights.?I challenged y'all to Be The Light for someone that crosses your path this Thanksgiving, because you never know when you are the perfectly placed light that shines an unforgettable brightness into someone’s darkness.
