    Debbie Boone sang a song (she didn't write it) that she said to her was about God. In fact it encompasses the way I believe in God and the way I worship God. There are various ways of Christian worship and I don't think any are wrong. But I don't worship in the doom and gloom, fire and brimstone, evil is all around us and the devil is after us, judgment, the end is near.

    Instead I believe that God has so much love that he provides such warmth and caring as to wrap us in a cocoon of love and light where we are walking in light not alone in fear (of evil, the devil, the end or other negative things). Instead we have positiveity, love, faith, joy caring, compassion, hope and strength from our faith to proceed in life and to celebrate Him. The song is below

    YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE (Debbie Boone)

    So many nights I sit by my window
    Waiting for someone to sing me his song
    So many dreams I kept deep inside me
    Alone in the dark but now
    You've come along

    You light up my life
    You give me hope
    To carry on
    You light up my days
    and fill my nights with song

    Rollin' at sea, adrift on the water
    Could it be finally I'm turning for home?
    Finally, a chance to say hey,
    I love You
    Never again to be all alone

    You light up my life
    You give me hope
    To carry on
    You light up my days
    and fill my nights with song

    You light up my life
    You give me hope
    To carry on
    You light up my days
    and fill my nights with song

    It can't be wrong
    When it feels so right
    'Cause You
    You light up my life
