Time to Live in the Sunshine of Life


Steve Martin quips, "A day without sunshine is like, you know, night." He's right, you know. It's our sunshine inside that causes all darkness to disappear. Right now Frank and I are enjoying an abundance of gorgeous red sunshine in Tucson, Arizona. We are enjoying 80 degree temperatures while back home it is 40 or 50 degrees. However, even if the bright Arizona sunshine were not beaming down on us, we know that our own internal sunshine can always radiate. We've learned to appreciate our surroundings, be they snow or sun.

We agree with William Makepeace Thackeray who says, "A good laugh is sunshine in the house." We love watching reruns of SEINFELD and Frank loves the Stooges. Anything to make us laugh. We have a hilarious four-year-old granddaughter Kaya who equates snow with Christmas. She told Frank once that she didn't want the sun to melt Christmas. (By the way, she said this in February). Anyway, anything that makes us laugh deeply is powerfully healing.

Wherever we are and whatever happens to us, we are happy to be here in this beautiful world where unlimited joy is ours if we so choose.

Like Jesus said in John 15:11, "I have said these things to you so that My joy may be in you." God bless!

Love and Light,
Patty
