“Jessilyn remembered:


Daddy didn’t say anything for a minute or so,

and then he reached up and caught a firefly as it glowed beside him.

 

>See this light?< he asked me when the firefly lit up his hand.

 

>Yes’r.>

 

>That light is bright enough to light up a little speck of the night sky

so a man can see it a ways away.

 

That’s what God expects us to do.

 

We’re to be lights in the dark, cold days that are this world.

 

Like fireflies in December.<”
