The other day, we were driving into town for dinner and a movie, as a family. As we drove, my Chris asked Tabor to tell me about the field of solar panels on the side of the road.
Now let me tell you, Tabor is 8 and Tabor is SMART. In fact, he is an unusual and peculiar little fellow. He makes an impact on everyone he meets. They instantly love him! And he is quotable and quirky….like the time when he was 5 and tried to engage in conversation with some Hispanic fellows. All he knew to say was “Hola!” and “Azul!” So he proceeded to communicate with those two words–over and over. Thank you very much, Dora the Explorer. Hello Blue!
Tabor began to tell me in his dramatic, Linus-like tone, about the solar panels. He said, “Those are Pho-to Vol-ta-ic, which means they are light turning into electricity. They live facing the sun, wherever the sun is in the sky.”
I immediately responded, “Tabor, that is a GOOD WORD! We, too, as believers in Jesus must live facing the SON. That is how we get energized for all that we will face every single day.”
No matter where you are today, live facing the Son. He will make all the difference in a day, in a life. We can be photo voltaic, too.
Just then a light-radiant cloud enveloped them, and from deep in the cloud, a voice: “This is my Son, marked by my love. Listen to him.” Mark 9:7
Living before the Son,
