I bought a number of chandelier crystals, strung a ribbon through, and attached a poem, which I titled Illumination:
Hang this crystal in your room
Where light is bright and clear.
As light reflects and shines, think of
The temple’s chandelier.
I am a child of God
His light can shine through me.
If I am clean and pure and serve,
I can help others see.
The poem can be sung to the tune of "I Am A Child of God"; we sang just the second stanza.
Maybe the poem should have specified to hang it in the window; my children have theirs hanging on the wall, where they are not close enough to a light source to throw rainbows. Hmm. Maybe "In your window this will go/ Where light is bright and clear..."
Something like this poem and chandelier crystal could be used as part of a Family Home Evening lesson, especially along with either of the Sharing Time lessons or Sister Dalton's talk.
I know that I am not the light but I can help share it. The closer I am to the Source of light, my Savior, Jesus Christ, and the more pure of heart and willing to serve His children I am, the more I am able to share His light with others. They will see it in me and hopefully want to shine, too.
How about the expense? Each one cost just over $1, I ordered some from Amazon, $8.99 for 10 crystals, plus shipping. They didn't have enough for me (we needed about 120), so found more at D. Lawless Hardware, $1 apiece with free shipping (and my favorite crystal of the two kinds). Thin gold ribbon was on sale at Hobby Lobby, a 30-foot roll for $ .79, it took 6 spools to have 14" per crystal.
