October Photo Challenge - I'm Thankful for . . .

Light /līt/

Noun: Makes things warm, visible, and to grow.

Early this morning we went to the farmer's market to pick up some apples, one last bag of corn on the cob, and a few peaches. It was still quite chilly out, in fact Loveta the Lavender Lady, who is always so good-natured (partly from whiffing all that lavender I bet) had a cute, pink, cold nose. If it weren't for the light of the sun there would be no apples, lavender, or even pink noses that need warmed. In fact, there wouldn't even be a Loveta. There would be nothing. That is not a pleasant thought at all.

Verb: Illuminate.

After stopping at the farmer's market, the grocery store to get milk, and the feed store for steer and chicken feed, we hurried home just in time for the General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am thankful for living prophets and apostles who speak on behalf of the Savior, who is the source of all light. Their words and examples illuminate my path on how to live.

Adjective: Easy to carry.

     28 ¶Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
     29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
     30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

It's true. Trusting and following the Savior makes burdens manageable.  

Yes, yes.  Today I'm very thankful for light.

Jane, you are so amazing. I hope you realize that. I love coming to your blog. You always seem to post exactly what I need to read for the day whether it be something spiritual or a recipe for dinner. It is always something I need. Thank you.

Man, I wish you lived closer. I think I would be at your house a lot.
