Thursday Challenge

Our theme this week for Thursday Challenge is 'LIGHT' - for other participants please visit Thursday Challenge


As a minister I lead 'church' services in a variety of different places - peoples homes, nursing homes, sheltered dwellings to name a few and I take my 'hands' and a t-light candle with me. When leading a time of prayer I light the candle and somehow the soft glow within the hands reassures those to whom I ministering of God's presence with them - holding each one of them in the palm of his hands.

O Light that followest all my way,
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine's blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.
George Matheson

I like your sculpture that holds the precious light that we all can carry with us.

That's a great tealight holder :-)

Thank you to Natural Moments and Sarah for your comments. I bought the 'hands' in a craft shop near Bournemouth and only paid £5 for it which I though was a bargain and I have used it so many times..

That's a beautiful photo and a beautiful subject for it. And I know a couple of people who could really use it right now. I talked about them here briefly, and I'm hoping the collective energy of the blogosphere might give them both some peace. So stop by their blogs if you get the chance. They could use the good thoughts.
