Cocooning...with the Light of the World

I couldn't resist posting this again … the quirkiest thing — “glass igloos.” Well, it got me meditating here in the midst of a deep freeze up north. So why not hunker down in your own “warm igloo” and join me …

Two years ago, a friend on Facebook posted this picture of thermal glass igloos to view the Northern Lights in Finland:

Isn't that a fun, amazing thought?  To see the Northern Lights through your own heated "igloo!"

I just had to share it on my Facebook wall with the caption,

Field trip, anyone?

I was just kidding, of course, but I was shocked at how many people commented,

Count me in! Me too!"

Here in the Dayton, Ohio area, we seem to again be in the "Polar Vortex." 

Oh, the Polar Vortex!  Oh, school closings and work cancellations!  Oh, cocooning in my nice, warm house!  I am so grateful!

For me, it's the Lord's way to get me to slow down, get caught up at home, and just enjoy some quiet reflection with HIM!

I know, I know!  Everyone does not have the same attitude...and the same safe place of refuge.  But since every good and perfect gift comes from above, from the Father of lights, I will thank Him and enjoy!

So as I settle in to enjoy my warm day at home, I think of those "igloos" to view the Northern Lights.

How much better, as I grab my cup of warm "something" this winter morning, to view the Light of the World --- our Lord Jesus Christ -- from my warm "igloo" of God's Word, the Scriptures.

Would you like to join me?

Grab your favorite warm "something." Then open your Bible and your heart.

Take in the brilliant glory of Jesus Christ, the Light of Life!

...[we] who walked in darkness    have seen a great light;...[we] who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,    on...[us] has light shone. Isaiah 9:2 ESV [my paraphrase & application]
