Jesus wants me for a sunbeam
Remember the old song Jesus wants me for a sunbeam?
Today I went to walk my dog and brush my horse. The sun was so warm it turned our deck hot despite the melting snow around us.
When it’s cloudy and dark it’s easy to reflect that in our moods, but same goes for when it’s sunny.
The physical sun draws us into a state of pleasure. We are to be sunbeams for Jesus. So does that mean we are to bring joy to others? Absolutely!
We are to spread happiness, to bring a simple smile to someone’s day, isn’t that what Jesus did? He brought healing, yes. But He also brought joy and hope.
How can we be sunbeams today?

I am a young woman who grew up in British Columbia. In BC was all I ever wanted; I had my poodle (Max) and all my friends, Saturdays at the Vancouver Aquarium and Sunday afternoons at one of my favorite beaches it was paradise. But God had a different plan for my life and my dad's job landed us in Alberta and now where I remain, in small town Souris Manitoba. The transitions from paradise to prairie were difficult and I will admit that now 10 years later I still refer to home as Abbotsford BC. Through this crazy pathway trek across Canada I have had one true constant, God; and though none of it was easy, everything that has happened in my life has formed in me a true lasting friendship with the one I call Immanuel. Because no matter how far from home we are God is with us, and thanks to God I have found an almost completely over looked beauty in Manitoba. If you open your eyes you will see that God has planted wondrous things everywhere you go.
