Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy….

blue skyJohn Denver sang that song today as I drove the highway to LaPlace, Louisiana.

There is something so true to those words…

There was an abundance of sunshine today and blue sky….

Coming from the dreary days of Michigan winter, sometimes I feel like Sunshine and blue sky might fix just about anything…

And then I remember the work we are here to do.

We are here to repair homes destroyed by the effects of a hurricane.

I am not sure how those we meet will approach the hardships they face…

I am not sure if hope anchors their souls or if they are living in a pit of despair…

I am not sure if they will speak of an abundance of God’s provision or feel bitter by their loss….

It was a highlight of my day to drive the highway with the sun shining today, especially while so many I know were dealing with the blizzard back home…

But tonight I am reminded that Sunshine and blue sky doesn’t really fix things, but for me it changes my perspective.

It is my hope we will bring hope and warmth into the lives by our presence and labor and freely share with those we meet the hope that does anchor our souls…
