Have you ever seen lightning in a rainbow? Me neither, but I’ve often imagined it. A white flash in the midst of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. That would certainly be a sight. Then again, I cast my mind to ‘Opal’, the birthstone of October.
It was believed centuries ago that Opal brought light energy to the body; soothing, clearing and boosting the will to live. When I think of it, I think rejuvenation, illumination and hope.
Light up October however you choose to. Let the days sparkle and the weeks glow. Let light pierce through darkness leaving a gaping hole, large enough to accommodate others.
Believe in the seemingly impossible and walk on thin sheet of water…then again, you are not Jesus, you are you and in you, cast fear aside.
Don’t light a lamp and put it under a basket. Light it up and let the world see you.
