Glow


My son left for his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 6 months ago. He sends an email every week and he says he loves Japan and being a missionary. I love photos of him, of course, more than anything, but I also love to see photos of other missionaries. Even with their day-to-day hard work and discouragements, or possibly because of them, they seem to glow. They spend so much time in the service of the Lord, reading scriptures, praying, and teaching that the light is there.


So this song isn't one that most people would hear and think of missionaries, but when I heard it, it's the first thing that I thought of. "The more things change, the more they shine." I've only seen the changes in my son from a distance, but I see him shine. I want to see his glow and hope that that glow never dulls.



Glow Lyrics:

I wanna be your rush love, I wanna hold you to the stars
The way light shines in the park on a Sunday afternoon
I want you to be big, want you to be gold,
I want you to be, sky

The more things change
The more they shine

[Chorus]
Glow, I wanna see you glow
I wanna see your daylight shining all around your
Heart I wanna see you glow, I wanna see your daylight so bright
All around my soul

I wanna see you soar love, oh, I wanna see you fly
Kick of the world in the dark and just dive, just dive

The more things change
The more they shine

[Chorus]

I'll run this world with you
(glow, I wanna see you glow)
And I'll run this world with you
(glow, I wanna see you glow)
Glow, I wanna see you glow

I wanna see your daylight shining all around your
Heart I wanna see you glow, I wanna see your daylight so bright
All around my glow, I wanna see you glow
I wanna see your daylight shining all around your
Heart I wanna see you glow, I wanna see your daylight so bright
All around my soul
