While on our trip to Lebanon we spent a night in a place called Bouyouti. I can't wait to share more about the food, people, places, architecture and our getaway in coming posts but for now I'd like to share something about this little window.
The owners of Bouyouti built a small church in memory of their parents. On the eastern and western side of the building there is a small star-shaped window designed so that the sun shines into the church from both directions. These small windows shine a lot of light into the chapel.
I've thought a lot about this little star window and its shining light and was reminded of one of my favorite scriptures. Today, and during the Christmas season, it seems the perfect time of year for such a reminder.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. - Matthew 5:16.
