Letting The Light Shine Through ...

A little child on a summer morning stood in a great cathedral church. The sunlight streamed through the beautiful stained glass windows and the figures on them were bright with brilliant color. A little later the question was asked, "What is a saint?" and the child replied, "a saint is a person who lets the light shine through."

Letting the light shine through is what we aspire to do each day ... in our lives and in our work. We're nurturing this thought and plan to bring it into a new design image.

Here's a view of the original source of the above quote ... an inscription in a book from my husband during our engagement. The pencil lines are courtesy of Rebecca at the age of 3.
