My wife, Jean, and I were driving back to our home in the woods and the sky was full of clouds and then a silver lining appeared in the sky and just a few seconds later the sun burst through and it was one of the prettiest skies you could ever see.
Then perhaps a dozen golden and silver linings appeared and it brightened my whole spirit.
Jerome Kern captured this experience with his wonderful song titled Look For The Silver Lining and here is the lyric.
Look for the silver lining
When e’er a cloud appears in the blue.
Remember somewhere, the sun is shining
And so the right thing to do is make it shine for you.
A heart, full of joy and gladness
Will always banish sadness and strife
So always look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life.
Will you join me in 2012 in looking for the goodness in this wonderful world?
