There is always that one winter day that the sunlight seems brighter and warmth begins to creep into the air, just slightly in the mid-afternoon hours. That is what this painting was trying to capture...that crystallized moment of warmth and coolness together.

Our lives are like that too. In those times when it is cold and dark....we focus on a beam of light to guide us back into the sunlight. For many living in the dark for a long time, they grow accustomed to their dark environment. When that beam of light hits into their lives, they often turn away because the truth of the light casting open the reality around them hurts. First reaction is to turn away and close their eyes. They do not want to face what it is there. It is so much easier to hide from it in the dark. They turn from the light of the Lord and the warmth of his love. I wish I knew the answer, if I did I would share it. I know as a believer I must continue to shine the light from my heart out to those around me. I have to then pray that those so close to me, living in darkness, will finally realize everything is much easier to do in the light. It is painful adjusting from dark to light, but it comes quickly if they will believe. Believe in themselves and the goodness God planted in them at conception. Believe in the rightness of the Lord to balance out their lives IF they are ready to be open and receptive.

Alternative is to stay in the dark, living in the shadows and never finding your way. Lost forever in darkness.


"He is driven from light into darkness and is banished from the world." Job 18:18

"He reveals the deep things of darkness and brings deep shadows into the light." Job 12:22

"You are my lamp, O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light." 2 Samuel 22:29
