Lent 2020 ACC – March 4th

Lent Photo-a-Day Challenge 40 Days-40 Photos

The photo word for today is SPIRIT! My photo my seem a bit odd but it holds purpose for me. 😊

This may look like an ordinary candle burning and that is true! I love coming home from work or spend a lazy day at home, snuggle up with a blanket and light several candles. I like the soothing effects they have on me. I typically buy scented candles and recently purchased lavender scented ones. They have a comforting aroma that relaxes me. I love to watch the flickering wick with its dancing flame. I never feel alone in this created atmosphere. I feel and sense a closeness with God and the Holy Spirit as the flame dances, much like the trees and bushes dance with the wind. The wind has long been used to explain the Holy Spirit, we can’t see the wind but we can feel it and know it’s there and the same is true with the Holy Spirit.

John writes in 3:8, “The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

ειρήνη – “Peace” in Greek, reference listed below.

  1. Yeah, I’ve read where burning candles is actually physically healing and I can believe that. It’s pretty cool to light some and just sit and watch the flames dance for a while. Great post!!
