The lighthouse!

Two years ago, we went to Molde and stopped by at  this place  located along the way. They have cottages for rent , restaurant, kiosk and a lighthouse.

Skarstua and Lysgården 

My daughter and my husband looking around!

Trolls everywhere!

This  thing was used by the farmers before to cut grass!

And the cottages!

And the lighthouse at the background. They sell handmade candles.


Autum candles....

Winter candles.....

Wedding candlelights

And christmas trees made of candles.

The fruits were also candles!

In Norway we used a lot of candlelights to decorate our homes, in parties, as gifts, or to  make the darkest winter cozy! Light do something with people.

God said: We are the light of the world and we shall let our light shine before men that they may see our good deeds and praise our Father in heaven. (Matthew 5: 14-16)

I began to ponder about it because there are also different kinds of lights. And what kind of light I am or you?


Are we the red lighs that reminds people that they have to stop to avoid danger? 

Or  yellow lights that makes people to slow down? Or make people to enjoy the beauty around them?

Maybe I am the green light. Always on the go. 

How about dim light? It is good when we are going to sleep or make a romatic evening with the one we love. Are we like dim lights  that makes people we encounter to relax?

Flashing light: Reminds me of a lighthouse that gives signals to sea voyagers at night so that they can navigate in the dark. Are we that kind of flashing lights that help those in darkness to find the right way?

But no matter what kind of light we might be, we cannot shine on our own. Like all these kinds of light, they have a source of energy. 

       Jesus is our source of light. So if we want to have the light of life, we just follow Jesus!

How about leading someone out of darkness into light? Think how wonderful it would feel! So go ahead friends....spread light around you! Remember, we are the light of the world.



  1. Hi Joy, Great pictures from Norway... Goodness, how old were you when you had your daughter??? Two???? ha ha... Both of you are gorgeous --and look like sisters!!

    I guess I'm a YELLOW light these days... I don't ever stop--but I'm not on the go ALL of the time anymore. I take time to stop and smell the roses these days....


  2. Great pictures! I love seeing the places you travel! I hope for different people I shine differently, letting them know that my God will meet them right where they are at and supply all their needs. Many blessings to you Joy!

  6. Thanks Spanish Pinay. And I am sure you are a light for your daughter. You have a good heart and very creative too.

  7. I love your pictures, Joy It's a vacation for me every time I read your blog.

  8. Hi Joy, Thank you for visiting me and leaving such a heartfelt comment I teared up. You touched me deeply. This post is just so lovely. I have only been to Canada, aside from living in the USA, so I love seeing other parts of the world through blogs. This is such a charming area. Fascinated with the lighthouse, so different from the ones here. Those mountains...ahhh after the sea, mountains speak to my heart. What kind of light am I? Mostly likely yellow or dim. Am a very romantic girl. I also cheated and read the beautiful story about the lady and her father's bible. I was sniffling so I came here and thought I would comment on both at once! Your blog is charming and lovely and it is a blessing to meet you.


Thanks for dropping by and your comments are very well appreciated. It is like a cold glass water in a warm sunny day! Blessings.
