I have to start this journal entry with a Quote: 

If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you'll never enjoy the sunshine.
Morris West

Wasted moments total up every day of our lives. Moments that we spend in worry, planning, devising, rearranging...doing everything but living the moment we have right then.   We have to plan and be wise about tomorrow but we do not have to over do it.

Sunflowers always remind me of sunshine. In the summer of 2006 and 2007, I did a series of Sunflower paintings from photos I took on different roads around where we lived. Hence this one was entitled "Hwy 156".   Taking this thought further, think of all the 'roads' you travel each day and the 'sunshine' that is there for the taking.  Make sure you take the time to enjoy it. 

Other times we may have to make our own sunshine.  The weather may be gloomy or rainy for a week and taking out the guitar and singing always brings the sun into the room. Sometimes you have negative people stealing your sunshine.  Take it back.  You do not need to allow them to control you.  

In all times you will find GOD is your constant sunshine.  He can put a smile in your heart in seconds. Once the smile hits your face, you can share it with others. it is the sunshine that keeps on giving.   Just stop and look around today and see all the 'sunshine' popping out.  God is here!


So that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.  Matthew 5:45
