You are my sunshine when skies are grey!


Right now I’m looking out the window. It’s like the grey skies are at war with the sun.

The sun so desperately wants to come out and it peeks out and then a few minutes later, the skies go grey again and it’s been going like this for awhile now, going back and forth, back and forth.

This morning I woke up feeling blah and like the weight of the world was on my shoulders. Just a lot going on and I’m a worrier by nature. I really don’t like this one attribute about myself.

When I woke up, I immediately started reflecting on my worries. I hit the snooze button and didn’t get out of bed until I absolutely had to.

Blah.

It’s so true when they say that the weather affects your mood. Immediately when I saw the sun this morning, my mood started to pick up.

Something about the sun makes the heart happy.

As I’m writing this, the sky is back to grey again. But the sun, or (“son” I should say) is still there. Still there waiting to press through the dark and gloomy clouds.

The grey clouds maybe you waking up in a blah mood such as myself today.

The grey clouds maybe worry and doubt.

The grey clouds might be any hard time you’re going through right now in life.

"You Are My Sunshine
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You'll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away"


I know Jesus is my sunshine, and it was like he was audibly speaking to my heart this morning and this song instantly came to my mind, and it was like he was saying you’ll never know dear, how much I love you.

And I know he won’t take my sunshine away!

So poetic! I love that song. Reminds me of when my mom used to sing it to me all the time when I was little.
Hope you have a brighter day regardless of the weather!
