Life of Faith
Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen on you.
One summer day, when walking in Surrey, on the slope of a hill — the sun setting behind me — right away across the valley I espied a most remarkable light. It was more brilliant than electric light, and seemed to rise from the ground. At first I supposed that some one had lit a fire with resinous wood that sparkled and flashed, but there was evidently no smoke. It seemed as though some angel had dropped a brilliant star down there upon the ploughed field, and that it was burning itself out. Finally, on my reaching the spot, I discovered that an old piece of broken glass had caught the light of the setting sun, and was bathed in a supernatural glow. An old piece of bottle-glass — yet so brilliant — the bottle-glass not being visible, because of the light that shone on it!
