It’s not fame that I seek,
but a grand opportunity to shine through service.
Isn’t that what follows all the buffing and refining?
Shininess. You blow Your warm breath on me,
and then rub-rub-rub.
The lessons and the love
are to restore me with a high-gloss finish
that glistens and reflects You.
Give me the courage to neither shrink
nor cloak the living light You put inside me.
