I opened Yahoo and this is what greeted me today:
Seriously? You can get a lighthouse for a bargain? Even for free like a cookie?
Nah. I read the entire article and some of the lighthouses still cost too much. But there`s one that costs $5000 dollars and if I had a little took much, I would`ve consider that. lol And the freebie? They only give it to historical agencies. I love history but starting an agency would take me forever!
So in the end, buying a lighthouse…is still and only in a girl`s dream. At least, in my dream. If you`re dreaming of building a lighthouse for the fisherman of the sea, I mean, that`s totally possible and and that`s for a really great purpose. Buying it for myself is like a little crazy and selfish, eh?
Honestly, I really thought it would really be great to own one. A lighthouse is a lighthouse. I think it`s better than owning the most priced car. A lighthouse stands tall in an entire island. It`s the first thing you see when you come to visit. It`s bright and it gives light to dark shore and sea. Fishermen and their families don`t know what to do without lighthouses. Lighthouses are generously helping the people they serve. And When you see one, don`t you get reminded of hope, and greatness and light?
I Have A Lighthouse
When you come to think of it, we don`t need to own a lighthouse or get ourselves one because we, ourselves, are like a lighthouse.
You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.
If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
I don`t need to own a lighthouse. `Cause I am one. I am a light-bearer. God called me to shine His light like a tall lighthouse in this dark world.
Reminds me of the Sunday School song my sisters and I loved to sing when we were kids.
This is the light of mine
I`m gonna let it shine
Let is shine
Let is shine
Let is shine!
I want to carry Your light, Lord! I wanna shine Your light!
I want people to You through me. May I always shine that they may see Your glory!
