very few things do my heart more good than a lazy weekend morning at home. today, still in my pajamas and enjoying some time in my art room, i glanced thru the living room and thru the patio doors to this canvas hanging in my florida room. i recently moved it out there to make room for all the christmas decorations. the sun streaming in the windows onto the wall and art made my heart sing. the weekend is the only time i get to enjoy the sunshine in my house these days. bill and i are up at 5:45 each morning and on the road by 6:30. it is after 6:00 each evening when we return. so as you can imagine we are never home during the week when it is light out. sunny weekends are a huge delight to me.
as i was taking this photo and the one of my tree decorations in the header above, i was thinking about my love of light and brightness. or maybe i should say my love of light and shadow. it really is an analogy for our lives. there are bright sunny times with laughter and cheer. these are balanced by darker days of woe and concern. i'm so blessed to have very little woe in my life. perhaps it is due to my outlook and trying to always see the bright side. i'm so aware of the troubling times we are facing in this country but i keep my faith strong that this will pass. we just have to persevere. we just have to seek the light where it exists and spread the light where shadows loom.
what better time than christmas to spread a message of brightness for all the world to see.
i'm off to get dressed and have coffee time with my hubby. then my son matt is driving over from indiana so we can christmas shop together. what a fun-filled day of light and joy it is going to be!!!
