Day 20-Shimmer,Glow,Let Your Light Shine

Today's clip is from the movie "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?"
It's a pretty old movie starring a very young Johnny Depp and an even younger newcomer at the time, Leonardo DiCaprio.

It's the story of a young man who is struggling to do the right thing caring for is overweight mother and disabled brother, along with two sisters while trying to live his life.

If you get a chance to see this movie I would recommend it, but it is not for children.
Leonardo gives a performance that is so convincing that I believed he was a disabled young man when I first saw it.

And of course, I've always been a fan of Johnny Depp.

Here's the quote:

Momma: You're my knight in shimmering armor. Did you know that?
Gilbert: I think you mean shining.
Momma: No shimmering. You shimmer, and you glow.
Although Gilbert feels as though he is failing in each of his roles as son, brother, and breadwinner for the family, his mother puts his mind at ease with just this one line.
The goodness that Gilbert felt he was lacking shows in all he does for his family. His mother can see, it and so can others he comes in contact with.

Matthew 5:16 (NASB) Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven
