Link Party - Wednesday Medley - 08/07/19


Michigan City Lighthouse, Indiana
I am linking up with Terri @ Your Friend From Florida for her Wednesday Medley.

NATIONAL LIGHTHOUSE DAY

Observed annually on August 7, National Lighthouse Day honors the beacon of light that for hundreds of years symbolized safety and security for ships and boats at sea.  At one time, the beacon of light could be found across almost all of America’s shorelines.
Kilauea Point Lighthouse, Kauai, Hawaii
1.  Let's start with a number! How many lighthouses have you visited? So many that I can't even count! I grew up on the southern tip of Lake Michigan and traveled to many lighthouses on both the east and west shores. I've also visited lighthouses on the Pacific and Atlantic coasts and  on many islands. My all time favorite... Kilauea Point Lighthouse, Kauai, Hawaii. My home turf lighthouse is in Michigan City, Indiana.
Ponce Inlet Lighthouse

2.  Have you been inside a lighthouse and did you walk to the top?
The only one that I've been to the top of is the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse near Daytona Beach Florida.
3.  Do you seek them out when you are traveling the coastlines or are you not that big a fan? I don't travel specifically to see lighthouses, but if there is one close by I will make an effort to visit.
4.  Do you have a favorite scripture or another reference to share with us concerning a guiding light in your life? We have a daughter that chooses darkness no matter how much others provide light and love. 

5.  If you don't collect lighthouses when you travel, is there something tangible that you tend to collect as a souvenir when you are on vacation or a road trip? I collect small tasteful shot glasses (some can be very tacky...you know what I'm talking about) when I travel; they are easy to pack in even the smallest bag and they are a great reminder of all the lovely places I've traveled.
6.  Please share something with us about your week. This week has been full of projects, we are replacing the front porch and wrap around deck (big project), we've cleaned top to bottom for a upcoming family reunion here in Blue Ridge, we've shopped for provisions for our guests, and worked on our travel plan for our vacation to Florida (Disney) in October. Busy week!
Cheers!
Lori in Blue Ridge, GA

  2. Wow it does seem like a busy time for you. And I definitely know what you mean about choosing darkness over light and hope and love. Sometimes we just wish we could get inside someone else's head. And you sure have been to a lot of lighthouses!

  4. Thanks for joining the Medley! I didn't even think about the lighthouses on the Great Lakes and I used to live near Lake Erie! Thanks for the reminder of our northern coast lines! Replacing a wrap-around porch is a huge project indeed! Good luck with it. The reunion sounds like great fun!

  5. That first picture is so powerful! I really like it. I am sorry about your daughter. It is so hard to have a child that can't see the light. My own daughter battles depression and anxiety, but does have periods of happiness. I pray your daughter one day finds her way to the light.

  7. Our son lives in Granger and works in Mishawaka, IN and would you believe I have never been to Michigan City? That will be on our list of things to see although our upcoming December visit may not be the time to go. Thank you for your visit to my post today. It is good to find another East Lake Michigan devotee.

  8. Wow! What wonderful pictures and how cool that you posted the Kaui one that I posted. Your pictures are much better! ;-) Now I am asking our Father to bring others into your daughter's life and bring the light she desperately needs. May her heart be tender and open to receive so she can see her need for our Savior.
