The beautiful sun shines hot and bright 365 days out of the year. Yet how often do we take the time to notice? When’s the last time you thought, “Wow, look! The sun is shining today. God must love me.” Yet despite our apparent lack of appreciation, the sun continues to shine each day, providing food, heat, gravity, and all that is needed to support life.  Likewise the light of God’s love shines on us every day, surrounding our lives with warmth and beauty.

On the contrast however, one bright moon on a dark night seems to attract a lot more attention. My kids will say, “Wow! Look at the moon.” It peeks out from behind a cloud and we take notice. Is it not true in much of life? The daily joys and beauties that surround us barely catch our notice. But the light that shines through the darkness captivates our hearts.

God’s love is always shining, in the day and in the night, 365 days a year. Don’t forget to look. Step out into the sunshine and let God’s light smile on you.
