The Song

My Daughter in law invited me to an online discount catalog that has great sales events! Every morning around 6am my phone alerts me that there is another event. Boots, purses, hats, socks, etc have gone on sale! This morning, as I was browsing though all the fantastic events on my phone I saw some signs on sale, and signs are one of my favorite things, so naturally I had to take a look. One of the signs had a song on it from my childhood: "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray you'll never know dear how much I love you please don't take my sunshine away."  My grandmother use to sing this song to me all the time, and I loved it!
When my third son was a little, I would sing this very same song to him! We have a video of him singing in his deep voice "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine..." he was so cute and he loved the song as much as I did. It was our song.
The song reminded me of all my sons. It reminded me of my oldest son standing in front of me with a bunch of yellow flowers that he had purchased for me, his sweet face so precious and dear, just like sunshine. It reminded me of my second son, his blue eyes dancing with delight as he would describe Lego wars. My ten year old and his love of wrestling and teasing. And, my daughters joy over the time we spend playing together. Sunshine, my sunshine.
Jesus, Say That Again to me. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, and I love you. Thank you for being my God, for getting me through the gray days, and for blue skies. Thank you for blessings. 


Thank you for your comments, I like hearing from you!
