As I sit and look out at the Arizona cloudless sky I remember why we decided to spend the winter months here – sunshine. This part of the state has so much sunshine – almost every day. It is an historic moment, well at least the weather forecasters get excited, when they see clouds in the future – there MIGHT be rain. And that makes them excited.
I have noticed something very interesting down here – everyone is friendly at the stores – really friendly. Smiles, “how are you?”, “Can I help you?” and they go out of their way to show that they really like us here. In our gated park we wave at everyone, stop to talk, and generally smile all the time.
I can attribute that to the sunshine – we are getting lots of it.
That’s why there is so much talk about Vitamin D. Are we getting enough in the northern parts of the country? We have many dark dreary days up north.
So if light means so much I can understand more of Revelation – there will be LIGHT all the time in Heaven – not from the sun but from the SON. God’s light will shine all the time and we will no longer be in darkness. I like that.
In the meantime whether I am in the north or the south I think looking to the Son is the most important job I have. He can light up my day no matter where I am, and whatever circumstances I am in He lifts my spirits. That is the LIGHT that I will continue to look to.
My five minutes are up. What do you think of when you hear the word – LIGHT?
If you want to join The Gypsy Mama in her Five Minute Fridays read below.
Here are the rules:
Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write because we love words and the relief it is to just write them without worrying if they’re just right or not. So we take five minutes on Friday and write like we used to run when we were kids.
On Fridays we write like we believe we can fly. Won’t you join us? (<—Tweet this!)
