Here are last Spring’s caladiums under the Dogwood tree. As you see, I plant the white ones with a few green veins. I like this variety because we can see them “glowing” in the shade, and they seem to light up the darkness.
Of course they don’t create light on their own. They only gather and reflect the light around them. It makes for a pleasant scene in the middle of the day when the sun is bright – But it’s also pleasant in the darkness when they pick up whatever light there is around, and do seem to glow in the dark.
We also need to be reflecting God’s light to those around us in the darkness. Our attitude, our caring for and loving others may be the only light they see.
“For it is you who light my lamp; the LORD my God lightens my darkness.” Psalms 18:28 ESV
