Thou shalt decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee; and the light shall shine upon thy ways..Job 22:28

In Sunday School class when I was a child I remember the teacher taught us the song "This Little Light of Mine" and the url to find the lyrics of this song can be found at:

This Little Light of Mine
Written By: Unknown, Copyright: Unknown

This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,

I'm going to let it shine,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.

On Monday, He gave me the gift of love;
On Tuesday, peace came from above.
On Wednesday told me to have more faith;
On Thursday, gave me a little more grace.
On Friday, told me to watch and pray
On Saturday, told me just what to say,
On Sunday, gave the power divine
Just to let my little light shine.

This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.

Now some say you got to run and hide.
But we say there's no place to hide.
And some say let others decide,
But we say let the people decide.
Some say the time's not right,
But we say the time's just right.
If there's a dark corner in our land,
You got to let your little light shine.

This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I'm going to let it shine,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Ev'ry day, ev'ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.

Light is as important in our life as it is in photography and we work with it as the light works with us...I did something different in this self portrait this evening. I placed pink light bulbs in the lamps on the dressing table with a stronger wattage for this existing light shot. The mirror is of course in back of me and you can see my hand reflecting more of the lamp in the mirror.

    This is so charming. The shot has such a nostalgic feel to it. I remember singing this song in Sunday School. I believe Truman was in office. :)

    Wonderful SP, Andrea. Richard took my word...nostalgic....so I'll just repeat it. Very nostalgic, with such a soft glow.

    I have been toying with this song and had a few images I wanted to combine but I just couldn't "get my little light to shine" with many things going on in my life but I think it is a brilliant song and wonderful reminder to let it all hang out, be yourself in what ever your endeavor.

    Very nice SP and photo. LuvIt. dp
