Maegan picked a wonderful theme for this week's challenge. So full of possibilities. I've loved watching the posts go up this week and the inspired photos that have been posted.
I've always loved old light fixtures and doors, anytime I go to Europe I come with hundreds of pictures of lights and doors, there is something about the workmanship that went into each. Above is one of my favorite lights, this one was next to the door of a beautiful church in Copenhagen. I love the angels looking down over the light, adding their own bit of illumination.
Contrast this very ornate light to one I found here in Kentucky at a Shaker village. The Shaker light above is beautiful in its simplicity and yet it is a work of art all the same.
Each light serves the same purpose - to illuminate the area around it, each is beautiful and I love them for different reasons. I can't help but take this thought a bit further to people - we are all beautiful and one of the things I love most about meeting new people is learning about the differences and finding the beauty in each.
Today's song is taking Maegan's theme in the opposite direction, instead of the lights coming on, I'm going to share a gorgeous song from Faith Hill about making it through the hard times, "When the Lights Go Down."
