Keep on the Sunny Side

As I'm sure you know, we've been going through a lot of changes in my house lately. It hasn't been easy and I've had my days where I think it would be best to just not get out of bed today. But I'm trying to keep my chin up and remember that God see's the bigger picture, and He knows what is best for our lives and our souls.
 
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8
 
 
 
 
 
The Carter family recorded a song titled "Keep in the Sunny Side" and I love the words and hum this to myself often! For all those who need some encouragement today...
 
"Keep on the Sunny Side"
 
There's a dark and a troubled side of life
There's a bright and a sunny side, too
Though we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

The storm and its fury broke today
Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear
Clouds and storm will in time pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

Let us greet with a song of hope each day
Though the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Savior always
Who keep us every one in His care

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life
 

"Keep on the sunny side of life..."
