This lil light of mine, i'm gonna let it shine

Carmen placed into my hands her lamp with a broken shade early last year, hoping i could fix it. And it's been hidden under my table, ignored, until early December 2010, it's been given attention to again...




















 









 ...restored, and returned to its rightful owner as an early Christmas gift and a late 21st birthday present. :P

I like how it can be beautiful and ugly at the same time - like us.

And i guess, when something's not very pleasing to the eye, when light shines from within, it becomes something beautiful.
For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.  
... we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
- 2 Corinthians 4: 6-9
