“Three grand essentials to happiness in this life
are something to do,
something to love,
and something to hope for.”

Sometimes our light goes out
but is blown into a flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to
those who have rekindled this light.

You are the light of the world.
A city on a hill cannot be hidden.
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.
Instead they put it on its stand,
and it gives light to everyone in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and
praise your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:14-16
