I love lighthouses.  It was so big as compared to when I was observing it from the shore.  Only up close do you realize how big it is.  That’s what happens in life too.  We see our problems and they are like mountains in our minds, but when we step back and allow God to help us we can see them differently.  This does not make them any less painful, but it changes the perspective and when you change the perspective you can have a different lens and a more hopeful feeling.
