(Day 276) This little light of mine

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Won't let Satan blow it out, I'm gonna let it shine.
Won't let Satan blow it out, I'm gonna let it shine.
Won't let Satan blow it out, I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel, NO!, I'm gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel, NO!, I'm gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel, NO!, I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Let it shine 'til Jesus comes, I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine 'til Jesus comes, I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine 'til Jesus comes, I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

@Scott - this one almost caught me by surprise - it formed so quickly. I had seen the sky a little earlier and it was a pinkish yellow that very quickly 'caught on fire' ! Thanks Scott.

Rick said...

@Photog Ave - thanks Avery. Just messin' with the camera and a candle when we got home tonight, and the sunset blew me away when I saw it last week.

Lisa said...

uh that song made me happy, gay and put a smile on my face.
Keep the light shining my friend. As in your porchlight, as in the sky, as in your heart.
Hugs and a shiny smile from me.
