A couple of weeks ago at a garage sale, I bought a light intended to mimic sunlight. It is especially for people (like myself) who suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder).
I am fortunate to live in Colorado, where we enjoy over 300 sunny days a year. However, those days when the sun decides to take a nap are hard on some of us. I crave the sunlight, even when I cover my pasty-white body with sunscreen. (It is one of those cruel acts of nature that while I need sunlight, my skin burns to a crisp if I'm out in it for too long without protection.)
When I brought the light home and was reading the description of it, it occurred to me that the promise of sunlight was much like the promise of Sonlight. I have referred to this idea before, that the sun and the Son each provide essential elements to our wellbeing.
I have great need of both. Without either, I go into a slump, sometimes even a depression.
So, for today, I am grateful for sunlight and Sonlight.
