Lake of Stars

Love this post.1

When David Livingstone travelled through southern Africa in the 1880s he came upon a large lake which he called the Lake of Stars. He name it this because when seen at night the lake is covered in lights from the fishing boats with fishermen working at night. The light on the boat attracting the fish, but makes the lake appear to be covered in the light of stars overhead. That lake today is called Lake Nyasa in Tanzania and Mozambique, and Lake Malawi in Malawi.

 

But whatever the name, the light is seen. It cannot be hid. The light is in the open for all to see who are on the shore or in other boats.

 

We need to be like those lights. As Jesus said a light on a hill cannot be hid. So to a light on Lake Malawi. And therefore like our light as Christian witnesses. We need to be always shining for all the world to see. Even if you are at work, at home, shopping, or among friends at a gathering. Let your light shine.

Distracted

We all face distractions through the day. At work, home, during conversations, during sports and at church. For companies and government offices this can amount to a great deal of time and productivity loss as well as profits. We can even find, after minutes of driving, that we don’t remember the moments just gone by, nor the places or traffic around us during our “distracted blackout”.

Kwe’ Hello Bonjour Guten Tag Hola !

We have language to communicate with… or not. We can, if we choose, simply remain within ourselves and not use our language(s) to speak with others. Be prudent, be loving. Language carries responsibility as well. What is said cannot be unsaid.

Glass Full of Positive

We know the people around us that are happy, they attract us. They are often happy with life and are the “glass half-full” sort of people. They are encouraging without their even having to do anything more than smile or laugh. Their being can be infectious and quite “lifting”.
