A Ray of Sunshine

Miss Little Ray of Sunshine
On this beautiful, Fall crisp day.
Here's hoping that whatever path you take in life
Home or away
brings a bit of God's beauty to touch your heart
Long enough to stay
Savor in the sunny spot, and there's always one somewhere.

For it's in the darkest times in contrast, that we can appreciate the light.
Hoping your Sunday is spent with the ones you love, some cool, crisp, sunny air and doing something restful and creative to share.
God bless each of you.
I'm off to find some adventure with Mr. Darcy. It's a Darcy kind of day. :)
