But friendship is precious,
not only in the shade,
but in the sunshine of life,
and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.

Thomas Jefferson

I always loved it when Christian bookstores, etc would change the "u" into an "o" in the word sunshine. It completely changed my perspective on everything.

I love sunshine.
I love the brightness.
I love the change from day to night.
I love the rising and the setting, the colors and the moods.

I love all of it,
but I am most grateful for my Savior and for the light that he gives.

"There is Sunshine in my soul today
More glorious and bright
Than glows in any earthly sky,
For Jesus is my Light.

There is music in my soul today,
A carol to my king,
And Jesus listening can hear
The songs I can not sing.

There is gladness in my soul today,
And hope and praise and love,
For blessings which he gives me now,
For joys 'laid up' above

Oh, there's sunshine, blessed sunshine
When the peaceful happy moments roll.
When Jesus shows his smiling face,
There is sunshine in my soul!"

As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit. Emmanuel Teney

I'm a control freak. I come by it naturally, but this week, it has become increasingly important to me that I let God take control, and trust that it will be okay.

It will be!
