This Little Light of Mine

Is your idea of camping staying in Motel 6 instead of the Holiday Inn? Not us, the Wilson's are campers. We love to pitch a tent or crawl into our camper and spend the night or the week in the wilderness.

Campers are a special breed. We love the challenges of nature and the adventures of "roughing it." Over the years I've developed a few survival skills. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I could rival Davy Crockett or actually live off the land.

My survival skills consist of things like: using less than 2 gallons of water to shower, or catching a fish with hundreds of dollars of equipment, or recharging my laptop battery with a power inverter while driving to town. We're pretty fond of leaving our mountain retreat to drive to town to get an A&W Root Beer Hamburger. Do you get the picture?

I do claim one legitimate survival skill--holding a flashlight steady while someone else fixes something. I came by this skill honestly while just a boy. When Dad needed to fix something, I'd hold the light so he could see. If I got bored and looked around, the beam of the flashlight would follow the direction of my eye. Dad would yell at me and I'd refocus the light on the problem so my Father could fix it.

Hmmm. That sounds a lot like witnessing, doesn't it?. Focusing the light on the problem so my Heavenly Father can fix it. Are you letting your light shine?

Don't let your eyes wander. Keep shining the light.
