It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 3, Page 28, Book 16

Our Gang - A few of my grandchildren after church on Easter Sunday!

There are two ways to spread happiness; either be the light who shines it or be the mirror who reflects it.

Edith Wharton

March 28th - Shine

Arise! Shine! The day is come and Light has won.

There are lights that flood a room and reveals that which is hidden. There are lights that shine as a fixed reminder of eternal truths. There is another kind of light, however. It is the search light of compassion and concern. It is the light that moves out into the darkness to seek the lost.

Let your light so shine among men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven.

Matt. 5:16 

 Light removes darkness. Reveals danger. Shows a path. The light will expose that which is not truth!  We have the power to brighten another person's day through a simple act of kindness or generosity.

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

Marianne Williamson

Grey clouds can come in and out of our lives at any time. Our outlook with how we deal with these clouds will affect our attitude on life and our overall happiness.  Any honest and sincere shining of your light encourages others to shine too.Whether we are aware of it or not, our actions affect more lives than our own. 

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable. 

Joseph Addison

That is so true how our actions affect others not only ourselves. Definitely better to shine our light out there! Such cute grandchildren all pretty or handsomely dressed for Easter :)

You always show some beautiful FAMILY. You have a right to be proud of the results you worked so hard to obtain.
Yes smiles are sweet. I like the comparison to Sunshine, so very true.

we now follow time to another landmark....

Your gang looks dressed in style. They are charming. PICTURE PERFECT. Glad you had a wonderful day celebrating with them. Family always brightens a mood.
