Dose of Sunshine

You are my sunshine

You are my sunshine

I almost skipped this today given the other 31 days writing I’m doing, but if I ever needed a “dose of sunshine” it would be today while surrounded with gray skies and rain.

A friend of mine who teaches preschool told me this story. Given that it involves Noah’s ark and I feel like I may need to build my own ark soon, I just had to share:

Ms. Dee was getting ready to tell her 4 year old students the story of Noah. As an introduction to the story she asked if the boys and girls knew what an ark was. One little boy raised his hand and said, “a big wooden boat.” Ms. Dee smiled at the boy and said yes, it was made of wood. Another little boy then raised his hand and said in a very dramatic voice with exaggerated hand motions, “it is a big, big ship with lots of wooden decks and it is called, The Disney Cruise Ship!”

Kinda puts a whole different spin on the story doesn’t it? 😉


I could go for that kind of ark today!

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. If you have a Dose of Sunshine story you would like to share please leave it in the comments or email me directly at


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.
