Keep on the Sunny Side

It’s funny that this song is on OH BROTHER, Where Art Thou.  Funny movie.  Great song.

Here are the lyrics:

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

[cho:] 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 Saviour away
Who keepeth everyone in His care

I am encouraged by this sweet little song today.  Not trying to say I had a bad day at all.  In fact, today was a great day…A VERY SUNNY SIDE kind of day.  I was blessed to be able to go with a group of kids–a big group of our students–who sang Christmas carols  at a local nursing home.  They stepped up and shook hands, hugged and talked to the residents.  They sang and smiled and wished everyone a Merry Christmas.  I was so proud to see them do this.  It reminded me of the reason I teach.  It’s not so I can take trips or get students out of class …it’s to teach children more than just the curriculum.  It’s to help students learn that putting others first is the most important thing to do in this life besides asking Jesus into your heart.

Today, keeping on the sunny side was definitely easy.

If we do what this song simply says…it will be easy to help others keep on that side too!
