FIAR – Hello Lighthouse

Your word is lamp on my feet a light on my path. Psalms 119:105

祢 的 话 是 我 脚 前 的 灯 , 是 我 路 上 的 光 。诗篇 119:105

Hello Lighthouse – Winner of the Caldecott Medal in 2019, Sophie Blackall, author and illustrator, painted a beautiful story of the life of a lighthouse keeper. The story evolved along with his life as he got married and became a dad while fulfilling his duties as a lighthouse keeper on the highest rock of a tiny island. Regardless of seasons and weather conditions, the lighthouse and the keeper remained as a beacon.

We were crawling through this book from Christmas to New Year and through CNY! A wonderful way to end and start the year by reminding ourselves that God is our lighthouse; with scripture verse from Psalms 119:105.

"Your word is lamp on my feet a light on my path."
Love it that I found the mandarin translated version from the library
