Sunshine on My Shoulders

There are songs that are so woven into our memories and days that they become a part of us. This is one of those songs. Written in the early 1970's, it was one that I learned to play on my acoustic Yamaha guitar. (I even had a dream once that I married John Denver).

I'm enjoying a quiet, peaceful afternoon. Mowing my yard, thinking back over this past week, planning my flower beds in my mind, thanking God for His wonderful blessings, of sitting beside my daughter in church this morning, taking communion, of friends and fellowship, and knowing that my God is greater than can be imagined.

The sunshine is shining on my shoulders today as I work outside and I wish you the warmth of sunshine on your shoulders today, too!

Not much sunshine here, but it's still a wonderful day. I'm glad you're enjoying being outside; there's nothing like nature. I love that song! :)

I think being outside makes you closer to God! And I enjoyed listening to John Denver during my high school and college years. I even named a cat of mine Sunshine, after the song!

We worked outside in the sunshine too. Sunshine is good for the soul.
