This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is light.
The hardest part of this week’s challenge for me was deciding which photos to use. I like the way different natural light sources capture a scene or moment, but I also like the twinkle or glow of artificial light sources. So I’ve included some of both.
A late-summer hike along a shaded trail was brightened by sunlight piercing through the branches of trees.
Sunlight brightened these colorful fall leaves the day before a storm blew them to the ground.
Painted scenes come to life on a wall with the use of black lights as the light source.
Strings of tiny lights draped around a Christmas tree transforms the ornaments into glowing decorations and lights up the whole tree.
Light reflecting off of shiny and glittery decorations dress up an ordinary mantle for Christmas.
Light was called ‘good’ when it was created, and our lives would be very different without it.
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:3-4
As much as I need the light from the sun though, there is another Light that I need even more, and I would not want to live without.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12b
Jesus, the Light of the World, is a light source that never dims or darkens.
“Take a look around you. Choose one of the light sources you see, and make it the focus of your challenge entry. .” Ben
