Stained Glass Windows

“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when  the darkness sets in, their beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”                   

Elizabeth Kübler-Ross

I read this quote this morning and struck me as such a brilliant metaphor for resilience. The beauty that is integral to the glass is constant, just as it is for individuals; it is the source of energy that shifts and alters how we are seen.

 

What is your source of energy and how is it shining through today?
