Be the Light

Be the Light

Be the Light

 As a child I loved singing This Little Light of Mine. The hand motions along with the naming of a person or situation for the light to “shine it all over” made it particularly relatable and fun. Some have labeled it an American Anthem because it’s uplifting and celebratory, with the potential to transform lives. I liken it to a prayer.

 In the midst of a pandemic with countless hospitalizations and deaths, along with the political upheaval in our country, it can be tough to see the light, let alone BE the light! Offering hope, encouragement and compassion isn't easy, especially if your own light is dim. 

 Today, when the moment is conducive, try singing This Little Light of Mine as you set your intentions on seeing and being the light to yourself and others. Let it be your anthem for the day.
