Don't Douse Your Light!

Last Saturday evening, Mark and I headed out for a spot of dinner and dessert in town.  It had been an incredibly gray, snowy (and super-cold) day.

Minutes before we took the pics for this post, however, a lovely smattering of sunshine descended upon our snow-laden day!  No doubt--this made me happy for multiple reasons!

Having encountered pretty-much gray, overcast days for (practically) longer than I could remember, nature's lovely light was much needed.  Light, however, extends beyond sunshine...

You see, our inner light is our joy incarnate--our spirit enlivened.  It's each one of us living life in a way that brings us peace and joy. Here's a thought I shared on the Tickled Pink Facebook page the other day: "When someone wants to "douse" your light, simply burn more brightly!"

What's your strategy for letting your light shine brightly?  I would adore hearing about it!
