Well anyway, I have discovered that dandelions do the exact same thing. They "sleep" at night and then stretch for the sunlight. Once they have it pouring down over them they awake to all the beauty God created in them. I have found that although I don't enjoy trying to walk in my backyard barefoot right now I absolutely love watching it. It is gorgeous.
I hope and pray that you have found the Son Light in your life and that you are allowing the beauty God created for you to shine through. There has been some definite stretching in my life to get into that light at times but it is worth the effort. Just ask the dandelions!!
