I sat in the warmth of a summer eve in my friend’s back yard. Enjoying the moment when the sky turns from shades of soft pinks and blues to dark blues and black, I glimpsed a faint light flickering in the distance.

A few seconds later, another buzz of light, brighter and more convincing.

I leaned in and waited.

A few more flitters of tiny, bold sparks.

I was captivated by the lights, so tiny yet so bright in the darkening world of the back yard.

Fireflies are incredible creations of God, and since I have not seen them very often since I was a child, I become elated when I see the shiny bug behinds light up!

It reminds me of the silly quote that circles Pinterest graphics…

“If God can make
a bug’s butt light up
think what He can do for you!”

Of course these simple thoughts lead me to ask, how is your butt lighting up your tiny corner of the world?

Get out there and SHINE, my friends!
