As we continue the New England Road Trip – Part III, we explore Nubble Light on a brisk day in Maine. The wind was fierce while we were exploring the different areas, and it was no different as we climbed out of our rental car and stepped out on the rocks to get a closer look at this beauty.
It would have been awesome to explore this area by boat, but alas, due to the cold Winters in New England, boat cruises do not start up until the end of April. We were a few weeks too early!
The lighthouse keeper’s house and the lighthouse itself look smaller due to the distance we were away from it on the rocks. I secretly wished there was a zip line that would take us from the rocks I was kneeling on straight to the lighthouse grounds.
Just this week, as my co-worker looked at the lighthouse decor on and around my desk, he asked why I like lighthouses so much. My reply was that I like to think of what it must have been like back in the days when the ships were lost at sea, being tossed around by the waves, fearful of the storms in the dark. I can only imagine the relief that washed over them as they spotted the beacon in the night shining brightly for them, ushering them to safety. My mind often thinks of how Jesus is our lighthouse also. There is safety and security found within The Light that shines so bright for all the world to see, if we would only come ashore as He beckons us.
