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

Pretty plant, Bill. My grandmother use to plant caladiums all along the front of her house — many, many moons ago! They were lovely too! 🙂
God Bless you & Sharon!
Thanks Dei – God Bless you and yours.
One of our churches had a shooting during worship service and indeed it has been a darken world this past day as we all learned what had happened. Thank you for reminding me of Gods Light in this dark world, His Light shines brighter than ever as His people are coming together in the midst of this tragedy – reflecting His Light in the midst of suffering. God bless you – Patty
Oh no, Patty – how terrible. I pray God will continue to shine brighter in the tragedy.
God bless you all in His peace.
I am already seeing His light shine through this. Although it was not my church it was one of the churches my office works with. It will take a long time to bring healing, but after talking to the pastor today I know His light is shining brighter than ever.
