SWING YOUR LANTERN HIGHER...Grit & Grace


The world needs the gift of you.
The holy hugs you share.
The hungry you feed.
The folks you help clothe.
The tears you shed.


Jan Grueter & Janet Bly at Lake Tahoe, CA
The forgiveness you extend.
The encouragement you give.
The children you nurture.
The hospitality you show.
The words and deeds you offer to those in trouble.
The secret, loving acts you do that few know about.
Your hard work and humor.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people” (Galatians 6:9-10)

Swing your lantern a bit higher.
Give the best of yourself today
in Jesus’ Name
and be part of spreading the light
of God’s goodness
to your world.

I love this reminder as I am working to get our ladies doing acts of random kindness each day. The small things we do can do so much for The Kingdom that will last for all eternity. Thanks much Janni-rae. Love, Connie Sue

Connie Sue: Love the inspiration of your project. Has caused me to think about this more in my own personal life. Many blessings, sis, Janni-Rae
