We all know those people who seem to understand and live this theme don't we? They have a light in their eyes and their whole countenance just shines, it makes you want to be around them. Then after you have been with them, you some how always feel better. That is the type of person I would like to be!
The girls are encouraged to take an inventory of their habits and hearts to see if they are clean and worthy of that light, that countenance that comes from making good choices. But that is not easy to do to in today's world. There are many challenges that the kids today face, that seem much harder than when I was a teenager, some are the same... but some are much more dangerous. Sometimes it is hard to see the way, as leaders we are trying to help them recognize their self worth and potential.
I love the theme, because it is a good reminder to us all to arise up among all the bad things in the world and try and shine our light to others and help them.
Good night dear friends
