It’s Saturday in Donetsk and winter still has a grip on us. However, the last three days we have had sunshine and I am so thankful for it! It’s amazing what a little sun will do to your attitude after months of not seeing it very often.
As I typed the title of this post, it took me back to my childhood and watching the Flintstones. I loved the Flintstones and remember a particular song from one of their shows featuring Pebbles and Bamm Bamm singing “Open Up Your Heart (Let the sunshine in)”. You can catch it here. It was interesting to read that the young girl singing the song with her mother received only $500 back in those days.
I try to be thankful, even in the small things so I am extremely thankful any time the sun shines, especially in the winter. As I was driving to the car wash, I was excited to be out enjoying the weather and the sun. Even while sitting in the long line to get the car washed, I was celebrating the blessing the Father had given me this day.
Tomorrow the weather promises to be the same. This excites me as I am traveling to a village church tomorrow morning, so it will be great to be out and enjoying the sun some more tomorrow. Thank you Father for the gift of the sun today.
