Do You Sparkle and Shine?

People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
— Elizabeth Kubler Ross
If it’s dark in your world right now, I pray you’ve found the Light …
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
If you’re not dealing with the dark, perhaps it’s a good time to take a look around and search for someone living in the shadows.
Maybe a little creative caring is in order.
Just a thought …
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you always find encouragement, inspiration, and challenge … at My Place to Yours.


  1. I think we should always reach out to offer a bit of light and hope to others. Good post- xo Diana

  2. Oh wow. That quote is beautiful, and it’s so timely right now. I’m not really in the dark, but I have not been shining His light lately the way that I want to. I’ve been sort of “dim”. Love this.

  3. Sweet post of encouragement!

  4. Very good post, Susan. There are many who are in need of some light from us. xo Nellie

  5. Just this evening, actually about the time you were posting this, I was thinking about you, Susan, because I’ve been out of the loop for several weeks and I wondered if you’d done any posts. Amazing how humans connect. And what a lovely post it is. The quote is wonderful–cause to pause and consider. I’m so glad we connected over this lovely post. ~Zuni
