If thou indeed derive thy light from heaven, then to the measure of that heaven-born light, SHINE! …in thy place, and be content.
– William Wordsworth
We were all meant to shine.
But…what does that MEAN?! To shine…to illuminate. To lighten, or brighten. To add light, shine, glow.
Join us each Wednesday as a guest shares with us their own ideas of living a life illuminated!
