This Little Light of Mine, I’m Gonna Let It Shine, Let It Shine, Let It Shine, Let It Shine!…The words to this hymn resonated each Sunday morning, with passion and conviction throughout the one-room church I attended as a child. The meaning of those words was reinforced in me throughout my life by the loving guidance of my mother and father. Their “Light” was unconditional love, faith in God, kindness to others, and hard work, “Everybody’s got a light in them somewhere, put there by the Lord,” they would tell my brothers and I, and show us. “It’s up to you to determine how the world will see the light in you.” If Alfred and Georgia Turney could see how the lights they cultivated shine today, their smiles would be brighter than the sun.
