Abundant Sunshine

That's the way the weather channel described the forecast here yesterday. What a poetic choice of words for the weather channel, I thought to myself. An accurate forecast, to be sure - one we've enjoyed thoroughly. But the words themselves have taken residence in my mind, acting as a sort of muse, turning my thoughts to the Maker of the sunshine.

Abundant. A rich word. Generous. Bountiful. Copious. Substantial. The Maker has not only given us abundant light from the smallish star at the center of our solar system. He has given us Light in the form of His Son. Sonshine. Abundant Sonshine.

"In Him was life, and that life was the light of men." John 1:4
"The Lord is God, and he has made his light to shine upon us." Psalm 118:27a
