Be a Light!

December first is here!

The countdown is really starting. 

It's so easy to get caught up in the frenzy.

However, it's really important to be a light in the world.

Let your light shine on all with whom you come in contact.

Smile at the crabby cashier and at scowling shoppers. It might just be what they need to turn their frowns upside down!

Like a candle lighting up the black velvet darkness, being a light in the world will illumine all who come in contact with you. 

Be a light in this most beautiful of seasons.

Hello from Spain: I like the message of this first Sunday of the month. Christmas is very near. The friendly, loving and educated people are my light. Keep in touch

I think this has been my favorite post that I've seen all day. It even brought a tear to my eye. Thank you for this gentle reminder, dear.

Hi Susan

Love this post and image. A great reminder of the season. Didn't make it to church today - I've got somethings going on with my shoulder, so this was nice.

Wishing you blessings of the season.

We need this post every day! I try to smile more and be kinder. You never know what someone is going through and the holidays make it worse.

I guess if we are happy and friendly it will spread to those around us.

A smile should be given away; it costs nothing and it creates happiness. great, positive post.

I love your blog for today. I am with you. I like being a little light. I always try - when I see someone to smile. And to forgive their rudeness - maybe they are having a bad day! lol

Tammy said...

Amen to that! I strive to be a light each and every day. There are always naysayers who want to drag you down but I look past them and keep on shining! :) Best wishes, Tammy
