Dose of Sunshine

These weekly “Dose of Sunshine” posts are in honor of the sweet, funny and silly things kids do that bring laughter and truth into our lives.” 

You are my sunshine

You are my sunshine

Over the summer my daughter’s very best friend in the whole wide world moved several hundred miles away. There were many tears as reality slowly set in and the permanence of the move became undeniable. Playing at each other’s houses turned into facetime playdates, giggling fits in the back of a car were substituted with text messages, and whispered secrets with each other turned to whispered prayers for each other.  

They have found a way to keep each other in their hearts, but even more amazing than that is how this family has chosen to keep God’s Word in their hearts and home. The family was able to build a new house in their new state. Once the walls were up the family went into the half-way finished home and wrote Bible verses on the walls. What a beautiful picture of building your life on God’s Word and His promises!

My friend sent me a picture of what her daughter wrote on her wall:


It says: “Hide God’s Word in your heart, just like we are hiding His Word in our walls.”

What a beautiful reminder to all of us that we need to hide God’s Word in our hearts.

Lies and half-truths are at constant war with real truth. The only way we will be able to spot a lie is if we know the Truth. I love this precious reminder written in the script of a sweet little girl who means the world to my daughter.

Thank you sweet Libby! We miss you <3

About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world. And it is where I record the beautiful glimpses of God’s extraordinary grace in the midst of my very ordinary life.
