A camel is sure-footed and can see in the dark, I kept telling myself. Our caravan navigated up a rocky path that wound its way along the edge of Mt. Sinai. We hoped to reach the summit by sunrise.
My husband, riding the camel behind me, yelled, "Don't look down!" Thankfully, I didn't. Instead I looked up.
The expansive, star-filled sky glimmered like buckets of rhinestones poured across black velvet. I finally relaxed and swayed to the stepping rhythm of an enormous beast. As we continued to climb, one of our Arab guides broke into song, his voice deep and mellow.
A peace filled my heart and I worshipped my Lord, the Creator of the Universe.
Think of a time when you were assured of God's presence.
It can happen, you know, when you are doing the most ordinary things, washing dishes, mowing the yard, doing another load of laundry, or riding a camel. Stay alert and don't miss Him.
"It is in the everyday things of life that we realize the magnificent deity of Jesus Christ."

This is a new adventure for me.
If it is for you also, perhaps we can learn together.
Don’t hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. NIV
One summer, on switchback mountain roads, we rode in the back of a pickup on our way to Bible school. We, my sister and I and our mining camp friends, belted out “This little light of mine.” We may have been lacking in talent, but not in volume or enthusiasm.
“This little light of mine; I’m gonna let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine. Put it under a basket. No! I’m gonna let it shine.”
Many years later my husband and I attended a Christmas program at The Cove, near Asheville. Billy Graham, Cliff Barrows, and George Beverly Shea gave an impromptu performance of . . .You guessed it. This Little Light of Mine. Two out of the three had obvious talent. Billy Graham’s part was to shout “NO!” when the time came. These three dear men brought back a sweet memory.
Questions to think about:
Am I letting my light shine today?
Who has shone a light on your path?
