In our home in America, I'm always walking around after the sun's up, turning off lights. It's common to hear the phrase, 'We're on God's light now people!' followed by kids mumbling in the background, 'Yeah, yeah...ok Dad.'
In the schools of Haiti, sometimes the air is so thick, so stale and hot with the humidity, and so dark in the rooms, that the kids come pouring out onto the balconies or the steps of the school to finish their studies.
When I see this, I can't help but think of how precious His light really is. How revealing and comforting.
While in America it's an option and in Haiti, it's a way of life, I still want to shout 'We're on God's light now people!'
