The LORD rises upon you
and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
Then you will look and be radiant,
your heart will throb and swell with joy;
The sun will no more be your light by day,
nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you,
For the LORD will be your everlasting light,
and your God will be your glory.
John McClements (my “godfather” at South Bay Covenant Church), from Proverbs 4:18:
The Lord [will] grant you favor and fruitfulness
in every area of life
For the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn
shining brighter and brighter until the full day.
Philip john (my father-in-law), from Reliable Greetings:
Success is believing in all you can be
in all that you dream and you dare
taking time to help others find their dreams as well
being ready to give and to share
Success is enjoying the pathways you’ve chosen
and feeling so glad to be you
helping others to feel self-fulfillment and joy
and real pride in whatever they do
Success is discovering new ways to reach higher
and reach out to those all around
for only through caring and helping and giving
can life’s true successes be found
