Looking for the Sunshine

Looking for the Sunshine

What roads have you traveled,
Looking for the sunshine,
Golden days always,
Just over the hill.

One more detour,
Another tomorrow,
Sunny days escape you,
Just like clouds,
You’re drifting still.

To others, you’re the sunshine,
Their warmth along the way,
A winning grin,
A joke with morning coffee,
Shared moments everyday.

No matter the byways,
Flights of fancy,
And farewells,
Above those clouds
The Sun’s been smiling,
Loving the look of you.

About Today:

I love this scene, for in Jesus’ enemies haste to destroy Him and His “good news”, they created a growing multitude of Christ’s which are now called “Christians”


“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they wondered; and they recognized that they had been with Jesus. But seeing the man that had been healed standing beside them, they had nothing to say in opposition…‘But in order that it may spread no further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to any one in this name.’…But Peter and John answered, ‘Whether it is right in the sight of God, you must judge; for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard’”(Acts 4:13-14,17, 19-20).
