“Someday perhaps the inner light will shine forth from us, and then we’ll need no other light.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It was a mid-June evening with the warm and peaceful air smelling like fresh cut grass. Hunter and I stood under the silver dollar moon watching in awe at nature’s magical performance. A swarm of fireflies danced around the sky creating a spectacular light show illuminating the night. Captivated by their essence, we felt transported into magical land of wonder and beauty.
But, the real magic wasn’t the show itself. It was seeing one of God’s creatures living and flying free as they were meant to be with ease and grace.
We can learn so much from these tiny creatures who light up the summer night. During the day, they look an average bug. But at night, their true beauty of illumination is revealed.
