Dwell in the Sunshine

With so many unknowns effecting our everyday life, it is easy to get swept up into the turmoil and despair. You watch things change right before your eyes and wonder, “What is next?” Kids are out of school, maybe you are working from home or not working at all, stores are limited on supplies, and you hear news reports that this situation is going to get worse before it gets better. Have hope, this situation will end. It won’t go on forever. I have hope that God knows what is going to happen and in His plan I have faith. I pray you hold on tight to the hope that only God can give.

I ask myself, “What is the current situation going to bring out in me? Is it going to bring out fear? Maybe insecurity? Of course, all kinds of feelings are going to come up, that is natural, but which ones are you going to dwell on. We all have those dark feelings but we also have, what I call “sunshine feelings.” Feelings of encouragement, positivity, and peace that we can “soak up and dwell in ” just like the warmth of the sun after a cloudy day. Think positive thoughts, turn off the news, don’t get caught up in negativity, and be the “sunshine” in someone else’s cloudy day. Acknowledge your feelings of fear, insecurity, and despair but don’t dwell there.

Be like a sunflower and dwell in the sunshine.

“Finally my brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- meditate on these things.” Phillipians 4-8


I am 54 years-old and the mother of three grown children. In the last five years, I left a profession I was in for over 20 years, I moved to a new city, re-married, went back to school to discover a new profession, and became a grandma for the first time. I also am pursuing my passion for writing. I am writing a children's picture book and I started my first blog ever. For years I was afraid of change but I now I embrace it
