 "Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves!"
 Sharing fun times with family!
 A cup of comfort~with a pure heart no less!
Just around the could be the very sunshine to brighten someone's day and fill it with comfort and joy!

This is the time of year when we begin to settle down, evulate all that we still need to accomplish in this year before the holidays....which will soon be here.  October is winding down and this has been a full one for my family as we are all planning a gathering next week!  I have to pinch myself to realize it is actually going to happen!  All my family will be together under one roof!  YEAH!  To me, this is comfort.  Just seeing someone you love and being with them brings a settled and comfortable feeling.  I so look forward to this time with those I love!  As a mother, I live for these special times now because they do not come daily....they are truly treasured times.

What brings you comfort?  Comfort is closely connected to peacefulness which we can find in our homes and lives when we take the time to slow down and cultivate an atmosphere of love and peace.  For me, personally, this comes from the grace and peace given daily by God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God."  II Corinthians 1:3~4  What a wonderful blessing to open the Bible and find words offered to nourish our soul and give us peace.  When we are filled, our hearts are open to nourish and comfort others that may be going through trials or uncomfortable experiences.  Praying for these dear ones is a valuable gift.  The Lord hears even the smallest prayer when uttered in sincerity.

Who do you know who needs an extra dose of love and comfort?  Perhaps a child, a friend, your spouse, a co~worker?  Being loved, unconditionally love, is a yearning we all have.  Age does not matter.  The tiny baby to the oldest is necessary.  I hope today you can comfort another with your ability to love, to share, to enjoy their fellowship.  I promise, this will bring SUNSHINE to your soul!  Blessings on your day sweet friend!!!
