Inspiration From Music

Those who know me, know that I like to listen to "Praise Music." This morning, I decided to listen to some "old-time Gospel" instead. I like Gospel music, I just sometimes forget that I do! One song that I was listening to is called "Keep on the Sunny Side." The message is an important one for all of us:
There's a dark & a troubled side of life
There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

[chorus:] Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry 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 cherish so dear;
Clouds and storms will, in time, pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.
Let us greet with the song of hope each day
Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Savior away
Who keepeth everyone in His care
We all have troubles and days that seem to be too hard to bear. That is when we need to "keep on the sunny side of life!" Remember, "greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world!"

Another way to look at it is from my desk calendar today--God promised a safe landing, not smooth sailing." Let us all do our best to find off the things that try to bring us down. There will be dark days, but always do you best to "keep on the sunny side of life!"
