Let the Sunshine In
Doesn’t your body yearn for the warmth of sunshine in the dead cold of winter? Mine sure does. If I were a cat, I could lounge in a sunny window andÂ stay warm during those few sunny daysÂ that bless aÂ Wisconsin winter.Â My two cats flaunt that fact, while I get ready for work and bundle up in five layers to walk from the car into work.Â For five weeks IÂ am so blessed to be able to enjoy the warmth of the sunny days in NC that far outnumber the greyÂ cold snowy days in Wisconsin.Â It feels like Spring here, evidenced by daffodils and pansies in full bloom, making my spirit light. It seems impossible, because it’s onlyÂ February and there are at least 2 months of winter left, at least that is whatÂ I have experienced the last twenty years.Â But even in the funk of grey cold days, the sunshine can penetrateÂ and lift our spirits, by experiencing a blessing from another.Â Â That kind of sunshine is really Sonshine, the way God created us to interact with each other, blessing one another, just as he blesses us with his expansive and beautiful creation,Â and all those special people he puts in or midst.Â Â Look around you and enjoy all the blessings and experience the warmth of the Sonshine!
You may know that the color green in our leafy greens: kale, chard, lettuce, collard greens, spinach, arugula, parsley, cilantro, bok choy, etc. is called chlorophyll and isÂ the primary receptor of sunshine that allows the plant to make its own food.Â Â But chlorophyll Â also brings that light energy into our bodies when we enjoy our leafy greens in smoothies, salads and as snacks. So let the sunshine in by eating your greens! See posted recipes Recipes.
