“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” ― C.S. Lewis

As children many of us learned to sing "This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine... " We learn about light at an early age associating it as a child to being awake, fed and either working or having time to play.

If you stop and think about the many sources of light in our world today, there are so many of them you cannot count them. What is light to man? 

I came across this passage from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"All goes to show that the soul in man is . . . the background of our being, in which they lie, — an immensity not possessed and that cannot be possessed. From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all. A man is the facade of a temple wherein all wisdom and all good abide. . . . When it breathes through his intellect, it is genius; when it breathes through his will, it is virtue; when it flows through his affection, it is love. . . ."

What kind of light comes through you?   Laurie
