"Light is sweet, and it is pleasant for the eyes to see the sun." Ecclesiastes 11:7

They are predicting more rain this weekend. It would probably takes months of this to raise Dallas out of the drought situation we have been in for about 8 years now...but days and days of clouds is beginning to get old. Throw in 90 degrees plus in temperature and you have a humid sticky day. Yesterday was the same I think. It was one of those days I worked in the studio from 5:30 am until 7:30 last night. Somewhere around five pm I realized I had not had ANY WATER all day. I had not been out of this room but one time for some cheese and fruit around noon. No wonder I was a basket case.

Today Terry and take our Behavior Management Classes to keep our license for foster adopt here in the state of Texas. We are licensed through Covenant Kids and I have a link to them over in the left column. There are over 17,000 children in the state of Texas needing homes. If you are in the Dallas Ft Worth area, call Covenant Kids and check out the program. If anything, become a respite home to provide a place for children if the foster parents have an emergency.
We have done respite care three times and enjoyed every single time with the children.

Can you even begin to imagine what some children have gone through in their short little lives?
You would be a ray of sunshine to them.

No matter what the weather is like...cloudy and rainy...Cold and snowy or just sunny, know you have the ability to keep the sun shining in your life and the lives of those around you. I have this one collector from Oklahoma. He has visited twice now and every time he arrives, he is the breath of God, lighting up the room and the conversation. He has that gift to pull every person he is around into the light. He literally brings good cheer to the room.

Sometimes a hug or a simple wave can make a difference in someone's life. It is a small gift of comfort and acknowledgment to another person and in fact when you see them respond to your wave or hug, a spark on peace will fill you as you have shared the sunshine of your mood.

Spread His light today...through your actions and words.

Sending you a sunshine hug...


Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Colossians 4:5-6
