February Photo Challenge {Day 8}

{Day 8} Sun

The sun.

Try for a moment to imagine life without it.  There would be no light.  Nothing would be able to grow.  You would never see a friend's smiling face or your reflection in a pond.  There wouldn't be shadows.  Just darkness.

God really knew what He was doing when He created greater and lesser lights.  And it's really no surprise - He Himself is light.  I am thankful for the light that the sun gives.  But I'm even more thankful for the Light that shined through the darkness into my life!        

And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars also. 
- Genesis 1:16

Then Jesus spake again unto them, saying, "I am the Light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
- John 8:12

Great post. The sun is something we just take for granted, but without it, we'd be dead. The Son we also forget, thanks for the reminder! :)
