Shed Some Light


In Paraguayan Spanish, the term we use for giving birth is Da La Luz. That literally translates to Give the Light. I love how that sounds. to give the light. To peel away the darkness and reveal what is. I know, graphic right?

But, before those ladies start giving out all that light, we all know there are a few things that happen first.

Tell me:

  • Have you conceived something lately? An idea, a concept, a realization? Some little spark that refuses to extinguish itself and begins to take shape.


  • Maybe you have something churning in your mind. Something gestating, maturing, getting all the right pieces in the right places.

If you are so inclined Give It the Light. Share what projects you have going. Tell us about what volunteering you are doing. What kind of extra-curricular activities make your soul sing?

Remember, it’s only those ideas who see the light of day that have a fighting chance to make an impact.

I’ll go first. We had a club in the last town we lived in before all the surgeries and accidents. I felt like it was a great success for our mission of touching the lives of young people. I want to do it again here in our new town. I have been planning it in my head. I have been praying about it. I have been calculating the best place and the cost. I want to Da La Luz to this project.

Now, it’s your turn. Have a great weekend.

  1. Great post, Ken. Currently, I can’t seem to put my finger on where the light is leading and where it will end up. I’m walking through doors God seems to be opening and trusting He will let me know if it’s the wrong one.


  2. I love that connection and I love the way Paraguayans phrase the birthing process. This is a nice post.

    Lately, God keeps bringing up Proverbs 19:11 and making me understand it completely by living it out: “A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense.” I think if *I* get this right, it will release His peace and patience in other members of my family. This has been a bad week, but “there is hope for me yet. Because God won’t forget all the plans He’s made for me. I have to wait and see…”


    1. Outstanding verse. …”it is his glory to overlook an offense.” I so often don’t look at that as my glory. I look at it as me loosing my “rights.” Thanks for the reminder. We’ll be praying.
