THE other day I was sitting in an old building when I noticed what looked like a feather on the floor.
As I watched, the ‘feather’ grew larger and I realised that it was not a ‘feather’ at all but it was the sunlight shining through the stained glass window.
It was fascinating to see how the reflected sunlight changed as the sun moved around the sky and the way that its reflection changed the figure on the floor.
We live in a world of darkness and light and our lives can reflect them both so that we affect those around us with our attitudes and actions.
In the Gospels we read of a blind man who came to Jesus Christ for healing and after the Lord had touched his eyes, the man said that he could see ‘men as trees walking’.
Jesus then touched his eyes again and he had perfect sight and everything was absolutely as clear as crystal.
Prior to the first lockdown I had a cataract removed from my eye and the difference to my sight is amazing.
There are times in our lives when God can seem so far away and distant but as we invite His Son, Jesus, into our lives; then life can take on a new meaning and things become so much clearer.
Just as I watched that reflected sunlight grow; then the Love of God in Jesus can grow in our lives and be reflected to those around us.
