Through the tender mercy of our God with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us. To give light to those who sit in darkness & the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. ~I John 1:78&79~
CPhoto Backstory: The first pic is from last year, when my students pulled out all the stops to decorate our little corner of the school. I created the second graphic with tagxedo.com. I’ve been playing with how to use the site for school & made a few graphics for myself. (As always, feel free to download & share any graphics.)
Dayspring is one of my favorite names for Christ. I found this little story from an unknown writer to explain the concept of Dayspring . . .
“The picture is borrowed from the caravan which has missed its way in the desert. The unfortunate pilgrims, overtaken by the night, are sitting down expecting death, when suddenly a star brightly beams above them. They take courage at the sight. The whole caravan leaps to its feet.
It is the Dayspring, the herald of the coming day, and soon they see the great orb himself filling the east with orient pearl and gold.”
Such a beautiful thought! How have your lives been illuminated by the Dayspring this week, sweet friends? I’d love to hear!
