The Righteous Shall Shine

Sun, Bright, Yellow, Sunset, Sky, Clouds, Light, Nature

“Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let them hear (Matthew 13:43).”


When here on Earth – we may humble be

Our visage rather plain

We may be quiet, and rather shy

Ne’er seeking attention – like the vain


We go through live and service give

Living each day for the Lord

We grasp not for riches or fame

But hope for a more lasting reward


But when our lone call  – we hear

Or when trumpets together sound

We will in an instant be transformed

Into brightness that will astound


For like heaven’s sun – we’ll shine

Radiant there forever

A  beautiful reflection of the glory

Beaming from our Saviour




Dianne was a humble soul.  She was easily frightened by vain or aggressive people and was happy herself to shy from the limelight.  She was loving and supportive of all, and the only thing she ever asked for from others was that they be kind.  I always saw in her a beautiful glow, even in her shy humility, God’s presence in her was never “under a bushel.”  But now that light has been enhanced, she is shining like a star.  Oh that we can all live that the light of God be revealed in us.
