“just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower”*

Ah, vitamin sea (pun intended)! So good for our health. Get out and enjoy the Sonshine (spelled wrong on purpose so look again.)

Freedom – even if you live somewhere where you do not have full freedom, we all can live free from the punishment we deserve from sin which is damnation or separation from God for all eternity. That is true freedom! Knowing we will one day be in heaven should put a perpetual smile on your face.

A little flower blooming should do that too! Revel in the Father’s detailed creativity.

I also thought how these three things can remind us of the triune God we serve.

Sunshinethe Holy Spirit shines into our lives to guide and direct.

Christ came to give of Himself so we can have freedom.

And The Father created all things bright and beautiful for us to enjoy.

So, again put a smile on your face…

and if need be turn that frown upside down.

As Christians, we should be the happiest people on earth regardless of our circumstances.

So, yes: “Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”

And I say, keep a smile on your face to represent God in a powerful way. That is how to…


Let the world know by your countenance whose you are and to whom you belong!

A joyful heart makes a cheerful face…” Proverbs 15.13
