“Our glowing possibility comes to life in the hands of a craftsman who knows what He is doing, who made beauty and brightness with handpicked glass, a unique plan and His own breath. In our Creator’s hands, we burn brightly in a dark world.” This is my prayer for all of you – that our lights will shine brightly this fall semester for the glory of our Creator.
