Shining in the sun
Though a bit worn down from its use
Penny catches my eye
There lying in an obscure place, just off the beaten path was a penny.
I probably would never have noticed it if the sun hadn’t been shining as most of it was worn from use and dulled. It’s edges were rough, as if it had been chewed up a bit by a machine.
However, today in the sunlight it shone brightly enough for me to notice and that made me think of how I reflected my life.
What did people see when they looked at me? Was I shining in the light of the Son?
Was I noticeable or just obscure.? Was I making a difference in people’s lives?
I might be worn and weary, but I should still be shining out the light of Christ.
Something this little penny in my path made me ponder.

Lovely. We don’t have pennies in Canada any more. I love your reference to how our lives shine for the Lord. God bless.
Oh? I didn’t know that Canada did not have pennies anymore. Interesting. The US talked about discontinuing them awhile back but so far they haven’t. Pennies have always been special to me.
I can’t remember when they stopped using pennies, but it’s at least a couple of years now. The way time passes so quickly it might even be a few years. 🙂
