A Thousand Fireflies

I had a truly magical experience last night while I was out walking my dogs after dark. Like most magical moments it caught me off guard. That seems to be the time when magic and miracles work the best. That seems to be the time that they can get past all the negative thoughts and daily baggage we carry with us and fill our hearts with their love, joy, and light.


This magic moment came at the end of a long day when all I wanted to do was go to sleep. What I got instead was a wonderful sight. The fireflies had returned once again to the woods here. They were dancing away in their twinkling lights. It was a joyous dance of celebration and life under the bright shining stars of the night sky and the light and smiling face of a full moon.


The sight made my lips smile, my heart jump, and my spirit sing in joy. It filled me with more energy, vitality, and love than I'd had all day long. It made me glad to be alive and reminded me once again that there must be a loving God and a glorious Heaven out there if Earth can be this beautiful.

Life is full of such magical moments. Life is full of miracles, love, joy, beauty, and delight. Life is full of goodness, kindness, happiness and wonder. Life is God's glorious gift and we should never take it for granted.


Take the time to notice the magic then. Take the time to take it into your heart and let it fill your soul. Take the time to become one with love, joy and God. Take the time to share all of these things with the world. Don't make magic have to catch you off guard to feel its wonder. Open your life to it, create it in your own soul, and give it to everyone everywhere. God loves us all and wants us all to live magical lives full of love, joy, and light. Let's not pass up the chance to be a part of the magic.
