A Sunny Day Forecast Even If It Rains.

Rainy days are most always my favorite days. I like the cool and crisp air, the sound of raindrops on a metal roof, the distant thunder of an approaching storm. I feel like life is slowing down on rainy days. I feel like I have more hours in the day. I have time to read a book, make a list of things that I need to do, organize any scattered pictures, straighten a closet…I can do anything I want without rushing.

 

I feel happy on rainy days.

And then…like magic…the sun returns and the world brightens. The colors are so much more vivid and the sunlight makes the shadows dance. When the sun does make a triumphant return, I can think of so many fun places to go, new challenges to try. I feel free when the sun shines…I feel vibrant.

 

I feel happy on sunny days.

 

Maybe sunny days are my favorite days. I simply cannot choose. The fact is that all days are really my favorite days. Why not? I have another day to love my family. I have another day to make someone’s road easier. I have another day achieve a goal. I have another day to learn something new. I have another day to make a brand new friend. I have another day to get in touch with an old friend. I have another day to laugh, to smile, to find where joy might be hiding. I have another day to make certain that I look at the glass half full instead of half empty. I have another day to be as positive as possible.

 

I choose to feel happy on all days. I only have one day to make this day a best day.

 

“This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalm 118:24…New American Standard Bible

 

**********************************

Music has directed so many of my thoughts and my feelings. I came to a conclusion about sunny versus rainy days after first hearing…

 

“Sunshine On My Shoulders”

by John Denver.

 

I was in my early twenties and still deciding who I was and who I wanted to be. The words to the song seemed to speak loud volumes of sense to me…then and now.

Read the words and listen to the song…it may be a slow tempo, but maybe it needs to be slow…so that we can hear each word distinctly and find our own meaning!

Sunshine On My Shoulders

Written by John Denver

 

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a day that I could give you
I’d give to you a day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I’d sing a song to make you feel this way

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a tale that I could tell you
I’d tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I’d make a wish for sunshine for all the while

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost all the time makes me high.

  1. I choose to feel happy on all days. I only have one day to make this day a best day. Love that line! It is an everyday choice isn’t it?
    Also love the John Denver song. I always liked his music. Actually I love this entire post! Bible verse, songs….all of it!

    • Thank you a bunch, Faye! You won’t believe this, but I am working on taking everything from a “lawyer type” bookshelf…one of those where you lift up glass doors for each couple of shelves. I want to take it to the farm and trade it out for the one we currently have (that I want to give away). I was thinking that I could move it past the kitchen, into the laundry room and down one step into the garage! Any advice on this matter?!!!!! Or should I just go to the grocery store?

      • LOL. I would probably give it a try if I could remove the glass. Would hate to break the glass. Other than that….you shouldn’t have to crawl over it, if it gets stuck somewhere should you?
        You would hate to disappoint the guys and play it safe hahahahaha

  2. Nice post. Any day is a good day. I love that John Denver song – I have listened to it many times. I was quite sad when John Denver died too soon. He was one of my favorite singers.
