I attended a class at the library where I made a beaded turkey with my sister- in-law. We had to take beads, wire and safety pins to create this turkey. There was a design pattern that we had to follow in order for it to come out just right. The colors had to line up perfectly so that the pattern would be intentional to the overall out come of the turkey. Once completed we had to hot glue the lights on the inside of the turkey and along the backside of its feathers. When it was completed I was so excited about the turkey I couldn’t wait to show my husband. I plugged it in and saw it light up and I became more excited. The cord to the lights are very short so I had to sit it on a lower ottoman. The problem with sitting it on a lower ottoman was the fact that you couldn’t really see it. I was so proud of it that I wanted people to see it shine when it was plugged in. As soon as that thought came to me I began to understand my favorite scripture more. Yes!!!! A DIY project did make me think of scripture. Matthew 5:14-16 ” You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before man, that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.”


Basically  God took pride in you when He created you. When you “Shine” for Him you bring glory to him. And He would like a dark world to see you shine with His light shining through you. So Shine for Him.

The only way to get love is to be lovable. It's very irritating if you have a lot of money. You'd like to think you could write a check: 'I'll buy a million dollars' worth of love.' But it doesn't work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get. - Warren Buffet
