Each morning, it is my prayer that I would be a light to everyone in my path. That the love of Jesus shines through me by my actions, my words, or even just in a smile. There are certainly days when I am more of a bruised storm cloud, complaining or gossiping or not showing grace to people, but I am so thankful for God’s grace to me.
My daughter is joy in a physical form. She amazes me at how she can cause the most callous of people to crack a smile and even wave. She is a light without even realizing it. Complete strangers have told me that she has made their day just simply by smiling, saying hi, and/or waving. How simple those actions are, but how deep an impact they can make on a person.
