I do believe we have the power to change lives for the better if we let our lights shine, and if we let our hearts be soft enough to learn, and notice the lights that shine from others.
It almost cancelled out the fact that the light wasn’t coming from the inside of my girls that night.
They weren’t in the mood to soak in all that beauty for some reason or another.
Oh sure, you may think that internal light could be shining from this picture:
But nope, this girl wasn’t having it.
Neither were these girls:
(Those smiles are faking it.)
But this one is real:
I was mesmerized by it all so much that I had to take in a little study of light on the plants in our front yard after my other unwilling subjects had marched into the air conditioning:
It took my breath away.
Those girls may not have been shining their own lights on that walking night, but this other night when I went to join them for a swim they sure were.
Why does it give children so much delight when their mother dives in and gets her hair wet?
I don’t know but if it gives smiles like that I better do it more often 🙂
Loved that they let me take their pictures bathed in that light.
Yes, light has the power to make things beautiful inside and out.
I’m going to have to make more studies of both kinds.
Challenge: (to me too, of course)…let’s put forth a conscious effort to spread some extra light in a deliberate way today.
