Fireflies in July

A million fireflies exploding like fireworks against a background of shadowy trees in the darkness…the eyes of children in a poor village in South Africa wide with the wonder of seeing themselves in a camera screen…the unidentified shade of blue of the Indian Ocean…the joyful laughter of a grandson whose Down Syndrome is more gift than disability…the peace of finishing a book that touches the soul…the calm of being still and knowing that He is God…the feathery softness of the back of my dying mother’s hand…flickering flames of firelight on a bone-chilling night…
