God's Glow

This week's winner of Linore Rose Burkard's book The House in Grosvenor Square is LaDonna!

Coming up this week on Tuesday and Wednesday is an interview with Ruth Axtell Morren.


My husband is very health conscious and our mornings start with Green Goo, which is, roughly, a liquefied salad. We throw all kinds of healthy veggies in the VitaMix and let her roll. Then we slurp down our green shakes. But there's a trick to drinking them. First, you skim the foam off the top then, once you start drinking, you don't stop until it's gone. You open wide and let 'er slide. It really doesn't taste bad at all, but a glassful is a lot to drink when it's green! Often when we're done we sport green mustaches. (Which easily tells me they drank their goo or not.)

Living in a house full of kids has made those green mustaches fun. It's also made me think. Can others tell when I've spent time with God, reading His Word and praying?

It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablet of the testimony were in Moses' hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him. ~Exodus 34:29

Do I glow like Moses did after He came down from Mt. Sinai? Do I even sport a small mustache like I do after drinking my Green Goo? Because Jesus is in me, there is a difference in my life—but can those around me see it?

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. ~Matthew 5:16

This is what I need to do—let my light shine. No quickly wiping off the green mustache and hiding the evidence after spending time with Him, but rather letting that glow shine on others.

That they may know that You alone, whose name is the Lord, are the Most High over all the earth. ~Psalm 83:18


  1. My desire, too, Peej! Have a blessed Sunday!

  2. What a GREAT analogy (and remind me not to have breakfast at your house.. hehe). My desire too!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
