Rock Salt and Lava Lamps – Safe Illumination

Greetings Dear Reader,

Light provides safety in many ways.  Whether it is keeping us from stumbling in the dark or illuminating our way as we drive at night, light is vital.  It is the light that provides a way to see.  The purpose of the light is to allow us to avoid obstacles.

I do not want to put too fine a point on the obvious but as a Christ follower this is one of the ways that I am to be light.  I am to create safety for others.  I am to be a light in the fog.  I am to do my part to help others avoid danger, pitfalls, and obstacles.

In the darkness it is light that draws us.  It is me being a loving, safe beacon that can draw others to Christ.  This is required of me.  In the fulfilling of that requirement I can also become more enlightened.  I can see further as I become more of a light for others.  I must follow, bear, and be the light.

I must serve humbly as a caution, a warning, or an encouragement that the way ahead is safe.  It is by example, humility, and genuineness that I can be this light.  Lights do not speak.  They do their duty and burn.

I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean

Philosophy, is the talk on a cereal box
Religion, is a smile on a dog
I'm not aware of too many things
i know what I know if you know what I mean

Chuck me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am are you what you are or what
What I am is what I am are you what you are or what

Oh I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean

Philosophy, is a walk on the slippery rocks
Religion, is a light in the fog
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean
Do do ya

Chuck me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep
Chuck me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am are you what you are or what
What I am is what I am are you what you are or what
What I am is what I am are you what you are or what you are
What I am is what I am are you what you are or what

Da da da da
I say I say I say I do hey hey hey hey hey hey

Chuck me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep
Chuck me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

Chuck me in the shallow water before I get too deep
Chuck me in the shallow water before I get too deep
Chuck me in the shallow water before I get too deep

Don't let me get too deep
Don't let me get too deep
Don't let me get too deep
Don't let me get too deep

What I am is what I am are you what you are or what
What I am is what I am are you what you are or what
What I am is what I am are you what you are or what you are
What I am is what I am are you what you are or what

Or what you are oh
Or what you are oh oh oh
Say what I am

Wishing you joy in the journey,

Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
