You can be a light

Dear reader: I will soon be posting this song on you tube. As a gift of being so encouraging and supportive of my wife, Karen and me, in our struggles, I offer this gift from God’s and my heart to all of you of the lyrics of this song, which my Lord had me write while on respite care at Northview Nursing Home in Englehart, northern Ontario, Canada. While the health challenges grow greater, on some levels there is finally an ongoing healing journey occurring. Please keep us in your prayers as we take this healing journey together with its ups and its downs. Father, help my own weaknesses in my humanity decrease, that I would be one of Your lights shining to hurting hearts. Thank you for this time to renew myself within to be the man of God, the husband and one of your servants, filled with Your love and joy abounding. Amen.

May your journey be made lighter today by this song lyric.


You can be a light

You can be a light right where you are

Lifting up all those who feel down

You can turn a frown into a smile

Giving yourself to others

You can give service from your heart

Going that one step more

You can help each other to sing a song of joy

By taking the time to care

You can be the eyes that take time to see

Seeing the pain in each soul

You can shine a light from your eyes

Shine your light to each other

Let us all be like candles shining in the dark

Helping each other to see

We all have lights deep inside of us

Share your light today

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
