You are the light of the world. A city 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 men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. - Matthew 5:14-16


Today, I'm linking up to a blog hop over at Pixel Perfect (since I found it on my friend Annie's page and thought it looked fun!) While I was looking through my pictures to try and decide which one to edit (since I haven't taken pictures in FOR-EV-ER), I came across this picture of the Children's Harbor lighthouse from Mother's Day and it made me think of the above verse in Matthew and the whole "city on a hill" business (thank you 10th grade English teacher for getting that phrase stuck in my head!). And I decided that I want to be a LIGHTHOUSE and bring light into the darkness. Add that to my list of things: world changer, dream chaser, love giver, door holder, and lighthouse. I think I've got my work cut out for myself. ;)

Taken with the lovely Nikon d3000 and edited in PSE 7.

It's times like these I wish I had a little more than 400 pixels to post in. The edited version looks SO much better bigger. Grrrr.


  1. Beautiful edits the sky is really beautiful.

  2. Oh, beautiful! I love what you did to the sky!

  3. Yay! I love your edit! And the verse is totally appropriate :]

  4. Simple but beautiful! I love how the sky just stands out now and the colors are so much sharper!
