YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE……was a ballad made famous by the young Debbie Boone in 1977, daughter of Pat Boone. The ballad was written by Joe Brooks as a love song, but interpreted as a spiritual by Debbie, winning her The Song of the Year, and many other musicale accolades. God is the BEACON that “lights up our life,”……and….just by our mere existence, and by the Grace of God, we extend that beacon to our family, co-workers, business community, and those we might have influence, but particularly those that we love and care for. God’s love is the LIGHT in our Soul that spreads His Grace and Love through each of us. Matthew 5:14-15 says: You are the light of the world – like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. ……Blessings….cjlb….8/9/13
