Lord, Light the Fire

Don't let our love grow cold
Cause I'm calling out
Light the fire again
Don't let our vision die
I'm calling out
Light the fire again
~Brian Doerksen

Yesterday as we worshipped and sought the Lord, singing "Lord, Light the Fire", I was reminded of a recent conversation with the Little Farmgirl. She was kneeling in front of the fireplace with it's electric logs.
"Can we roast marshmallows, Nanni?"
"No, Sugar, those logs don't have any heat."
"So they're just FAKE, huh Nanni?"

Lord, let that red light bulb, be a warning to not just put on a "light show." Let us not make the "sounds" of being real, but actually being the noise of cheap tinsel, twirling round and round.....
Lord, light the fire again.....that we might shine for You, sharing the warmth of Your love, and spreading sparks......

Good post Mom. We only fool ourselves when we go through the motions right? Sooner or later, the act falls apart.
