“Our first show of light as the Lord’s disciples must be in doing the things he tells us… So shall we drink the light like some diamonds.” 

– George Macdonald – The Hope of the Gospel


Doing the Things He Tells Us

Drink the light? Mine would be a salted caramel mocha frappuccino with half the pumps, if you’re asking – my favorite drink. Of course with whipped cream or what’s “all this sweet work worth?” (Shelley)

This “Drink the Light” series is a hobby-pondering of mine in the making, inspired by George MacDonald’s Hope of the Gospel. My thoughts, coming as soon as I can figure them out, come from what God is trying to tell me.



Until then, I’m pondering this:

Love’s Philosophy

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The fountains mingle with the river   
And the rivers with the ocean,   
The winds of heaven mix for ever   
With a sweet emotion;   
Nothing in the world is single, 
All things by a law divine   
In one another’s being mingle—   
Why not I with thine?   
See the mountains kiss high heaven,   
And the waves clasp one another; 
No sister-flower would be forgiven   
If it disdain’d its brother;   
And the sunlight clasps the earth,   
And the moonbeams kiss the sea—   
What is all this sweet work worth 
If thou kiss not me?


“So shall we drink the light like some diamonds.”
