Vous Êtes Lumières

You Are Lights
Lights of the World
like a Star to me

Merci Mes Amis
Thank You My Friends
. . . Vous Êtes . . .
lumières du jour
lumières du soleil
lumières des étoiles

   “You are the light of the world.
A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.
Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."
Matthew 5:14-16

You are
lights in the dark
sunshine on a cloudy day
twinkling stars
Thank you, my friends
~ merci ~

J'adore tes mots aujourd'hui, ma belle amie. Perfectly picked words, today, sweet friend. I feel the same, so I am totally with you on this.
Knowing we are all out there in the big big world, living our life, sharing this blogger spot full of JOY whenever we feel to, has enriched my my life too.
Hooray for virtual hugs and long distance positive vibes!
Let's have a good coffee on that, Maria. Let me see, we are 6 hours ahead, so if I drink a coffee at three o'clock in the afternoon and you would drink yours at nine in the morning, we would be drinking together apart. I will have that cup at three and think of you while sipping my coffee.
Much love to YOU xxxx

Well, hello ladies, so nice to meet you to here on blog world. Would that make me on the same hour level with Saskia, so I can join you in the cuppa? What lovely post. Yes, we are the light of Christ in this world, and doesn't it look bright and wonderful seen through your lovely pictures and comments! And just to add a little something to that, I heard this morning a lovely message: we are a new creation, with a new identity, a new citizenship, a new destiny, therefore members of the same family, shining out in love.(2 Cor 5:17) Have a blessed Sunday! Love, Lori xxx

What a beautiful post:)

Linda said...

Oh how I want to be a beautiful light for Him. You have a gentle way of making such beauty out of the ordinary Maria. You are truly a sparkling light.

Barb said...

Your post reminds me to try and twinkle a bit more, Maria. I remember reciting this verse in Sunday School. (I think then the verse was "hide your light under a barrel" or at least that's what I remember.) You are a kind Soul, Maria. I wish you, Chris, and your family a blessed Thanksgiving.

Diana said...

Love Di ♥

You bring light to me with every comment you so graciously leave on my blog, Maria. Your blog is a ray of light always!

Indie.Tea said...

What a lovely thoughtful and sweet. I hope that you are doing well.
Regarding your comment about the figs - since I do live in California, they're easily available for me...but I thought paying $4 for a basket was expensive until I read your comment!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

How lovely...did you take the photos? Streetlights?

Are things getting any better for you without Muffin?

Anita said...

Maria, I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!! I apologize for not being around at all, but I have been seriously busy with community and church. We are feeding a needy family tomorrow, so I cannot wait for that. Have a wonderful day!!!

Have a blessed day..& hugs to you,

It's been such an honor stopping by your home and checking out what you are doing. You encourage and motive me. I tried to find that blogging magazine, but I might need to order it on line.
I just read your note on Miss Muffin.
It's always so hard to say good bye to our pets. Oh, I can recall some difficult times, and yet they are free from pain. But they have brought us so much joy.
