A new award has been created by Coach @ http://goodtimestories.wordpress.com/
It’s called “The Lighthouse Award” ……
~~created for “a blog that brings light to a dark world”~~
And the wonderful Dr. Rex has nominated me for this award, calling me a beacon of light. I’m not sure I deserve such high praise, but I greatly appreciate it and am humbled by the nomination.
A lighthouse is a beacon of light, a guiding light ….. to be considered and compared to this is humbling and brings with it much responsibility, obligation and accountability. I will try my best to live up to this honor with integrity and veracity.
“A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses and used as an aid to navigation for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways.
Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals, reefs, safe entries to harbors, and can also assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and replacement by modern electronic navigational systems.”
Be the Lighthouse – Poem
Some days the road is lit and the way is easy, other days the path is dark and the going rough. Fear no darkness, be the lighthouse.The storm will come and there’ll be no shelter, stand tall and let your light shine. Be the lighthouse.It is said that which doesn’t destroy you can only make you stronger, free your mind and choose to be the lighthouse.One thought can change the entire universe.
Peace or war? Love or hate? Who’s right and who’s wrong? Who owns this or that bit of dirt? Be the lighthouse and everything will sort itself out just fine.
Many will become lost, be the lighthouse and help them find their way.
Wherever you’re going, you’re getting there. Your path is already before your feet, be the lighthouse, carry the water and bring your light to the places where there are none.
Tune in to your inner vibration and become millions of voices that carry out across all time and space, be that beacon of hope for those who have none. Be the lighthouse and help them find their way home, be the light to guide their way on.
They’re out there, right now, looking for you.
As it gets darker, shine brighter, be the lighthouse, become the eternal light… Be the lighthouse.
