Have you ever sat under a tree and noticed gossamer silver threads on the grass glistening in the sun? Anywhere else, especially in corners, ceilings, under furniture or behind doors, these are nothing but untidy cobwebs that need clearing. Yes, this masterpiece of spiders to trap their prey reflects the brilliance of the early morning sun in such an unexpected way. I immediately took my camera (see the header) to capture so many jewels stringed in silver! I was just drawn to stare and look and listen.
How many of us are really happy for who we are? Many times I am not. If only I were… How I wish I could be more … The humble cobwebs shimmer in the breeze and tell me, “I may be unsightly to some, but it is through (not in spite of) my silken threads that I reflect light.” God knows more than anyone what I am made of. In the words of the Secret of Success, we are “very weak, incapable and inadequate in every way.” But if like cobwebs I spend some moments in the sun – in the light of Christ, I may, no matter how faint or temporary, reflect his glory shining through me.
It was this reflection that finally convinced me to re-start blogging after much hesitation and resistance. I hope this space may be an avenue to share with you God’s blessings and help me keep in touch with many friends, family and relatives whom I am rediscovering through another web – the online community.
I didn’t get the cobwebs on this one, but the dewdrop was just irresistible.
