Sunshine, eighty degrees, cool breeze. Sounds like a perfect day, right? That is exactly the type of weather we had recently here at Southern, the type of weather that just seems to say that spring is here! From the blossoming trees and flowers to the clouds and warm sunshine, it felt like spring had finally made its appearance. However, for some odd reason Mother Nature decided that it wasn't quite time for spring to arrive and quickly sent us some chilly weather filled with clouds, rain, and freezing temperatures and then some more rain. This constant rain and cloudy weather seemed to make everything gloomy, especially with everyone busy finishing up projects, papers, etcetera for the end of the year. But praise the Lord that it was temporary! It was a blessing to drive back to campus today with the warm sun and cool breeze. The campus was beautiful with all the budding trees and plants and the sun that had made it's appearance at last. What a blessing! The gloom that had been here last week just melted away when the sun finally came out. Optimism came back to me, and now I feel so much better. All the things that I need to get done don't worry me as much-I'm looking ahead to April 27 when classes will finally be over! It really is amazing what a little sunshine can do for someone. It melts away sadness and gloom and brings with it optimism and hope. As Christians, we should be sunlight to others in need, radiating Christ's love through dark clouds. Even the smallest amount of sunshine can make all the difference. When you think of a day when the sky is covered with clouds, there is so much joy when you say a few rays of sunlight peaking through a hole in the clouds. We can be those rays of God's sunshine peaking through the smallest hole. So whenever you see someone depressed, sad, pessimistic, gloomy, or whatever it may be, send a little sunlight their way. You never know the amount of good it will do.
