Spreading Light - Sunshine

The internet is filled with all sorts of content; personal opinions, ideas, crafts, history, recipes, discussions, arguments, strong headings and sub-titles geared towards inciting emotions and passions etc. 

Many of these things, including wonderful content about the gospel, home and families, sharing of ideals and values, and strengthening one another can bless and uplift.  Those to the contrary - do just the opposite.

Today I share a message about Spreading Light.  Perhaps the words to a sweet hymn 'Scatter Sunshine' are a co-partner to that message.  Each word and thought that we share has energy.  It can do good and uplift and enlighten or it can further the work of the adversary himself who seeks to demean, destroy and depress.

In a world where sorrow
Ever will be known,
Where are found the needy
And the sad and lone,
How much joy and comfort
You can all bestow,
If you scatter sunshine
Ev’rywhere you go.

[Chorus]
Scatter sunshine all along your way.
Cheer and bless and brighten
Ev’ry passing day.
Scatter sunshine all along your way.
Cheer and bless and brighten
Ev’ry passing day.

Slightest actions often
Meet the sorest needs,
For the world wants daily
Little kindly deeds.
Oh, what care and sorrow
You may help remove,
With your songs and courage,
Sympathy and love.

When the days are gloomy,
Sing some happy song;
Meet the world’s repining
With a courage strong.
Go with faith undaunted
Thru the ills of life;
Scatter smiles and sunshine
O’er its toil and strife.
