Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that are drunken are drunken in the night.
But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation .
Thessalonians 5 vs 5-8
I love Sundays as I've mentioned before, but today even though the temperature was perfect the day brought gray skies . My old friend Melancholy paid me a visit, and I was quick to let him in, but in the nick of time my new best friends Hope and Thanksgiving came to the rescue, shutting the door soundly against Melancholy and his companions worry, fear, and doubt .
Not every day will be filled with sunshine; lifelong happiness is something we have to work towards daily . The next time negativity comes knocking at your door, don't answer, he doesn't like being ignored and will eventually get tired and go away .
