Basking In the Sun

I love this photo. Wherever there is a spot of sun on the floor, Tucker wants to be in it. It makes him feel loved, happy, content, and warm. Being in the light is what's it's all about.

What about you? Have you been shrinking back from the light, trying to stay in the shadows? One verse that reminds me to continue walking in the light is this one:

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

Isaiah 2:5
Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD.

Psalm 56:13
For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.

Let's make it a point to continue to walk with God, to bask in His presence--in His light.

I love this! Our dog Rudi does the exact same thing, it's funny. She even begs to go outside so she can lay on the deck and sun herself! :)

You've won me over lol! Any post with a dog in it, has to be brilliant!

I love the scriptures and the analogy you used... it paints a perfect picture and message...

Love the verses that you chose and the encouragement not to shrink back from the light but walk in His glorious light! I just wanna be in His Presence & His light! Thanks for leading us to the warmth of His Love!

I love posts about our dogs. I just used our "Chip" in my gratitude list for Multitude Monday. And he goes on and lies down in the sun on this hot desert days! I guess that's a real clue as to how much we need to be drawn to the Light!
