noontime gifts

the word noon in Hebrew as used in the Old Testament means double light, splendor, or to glisten. it is referred to as the strongest, clearest, brightest part of the day. but also, noon/noonday/noontime is often used in scripture as an analogy for the true Light of the world.

yet if you devote your heart to God
and stretch out your hands to Him,
if you put away the sin that is in your hand
and allow no evil to dwell in your tent,
then, free of fault, you will stand firm and without fear...
life will be brighter than noonday,
and darkness will become like morning.
job 11:13-17 

and so, i accept the challenge of capturing my noontime gifts. each day at noon, the brightest part of the day, i take a photo and a moment to give thanks.

what can i be grateful for in this moment? 
is there anything in this moment that is good, noble, lovely, or excellent?  
who does God love in this moment?

here are some of my noontime gifts from this week:

in this moment, God loves my family // closing on the new house is excellent // Bambi getting comfortable in our new house is good // i am grateful for car-time conversations with my kids
