Elevate Light. When this name came to me I knew I wanted it to be the name for my business. I wanted to somehow use even my work to be a light. You never know what the people you meet are dealing with. I heard a quote a long time ago that has always stuck with me:

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.” – Wendy Mass

I pray that we all can be lights in this dark world. On October 2nd my Grandpa passed away. I thank God we were able to go and spend time with him before he met Jesus in Heaven. My Grandpa was like this bright light. You couldn’t be around him and NOT smile or laugh. He was such a kind man who loved God, family, friends and life. He lived every day to the fullest. He made a huge impact in our all of our family’s lives and we are better for knowing him. Even though he is no longer here with us, the life he lived is still making an impact on us still here. I want to make him proud. I want to be a light.

How can we be a light? This will probably look different for each of us but God has a purpose for us all if we will just surrender to Him and let Him guide us. Maybe the way you shine your light is to be there for a grieving friend, do a random act of kindness for a stranger, just being there to listen when someone needs to talk, giving an encouraging word to someone. This world needs more light now more than ever before.

Be a light. Shine bright. Make a difference. Life is short. We have one chance here on Earth to make an impact. Let’s make it count. #bealight

“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:5 NIV
