Thank God for Shade

shade-8690219246_3c5aeb285b_qA tiny patch of SHADE on a hot summer day is a miracle, fulfilling my body’s need for shelter from the sweltering sun beating down upon it.  SHADE is a byproduct of an object that lies between myself and the sun.  When feeling overheated or overwhelmed by an experience in my life, I can create a miraculous spot of SHADE within me by moving my attention away from whatever is beating upon me.  By mentally stepping out of the situation for a moment, I place the Light within me between myself and the experience. This provides the very shelter needed for a moment of cool, calm and peaceful balance. In the SHADE, I am reestablished in the Light of God within me and I am refreshed and renewed.
