On the Sunnyside

I woke up super early this morning and was at the computer by 5am. I must admit I have been really bitter the past few days. I don't accept change well and I often struggle to move past what is comfortable.

I ALWAYS have music on, it is actually an obsession. I can't work without music. This song came across my slacker play list and might be the exact words I needed to hear in my life right now. This is a very old song and has been recorded by many wonderful artists over the years, but I will include the Brad Paisley version as it is the version I heard this morning.

Keep On The Sunny Side of Life

There's a dark and a troubled side of life
There's a bright and a sunny side, too
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

Tho' the storm in its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherished so dear;
Storm and cloud will in time pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.

Let us greet with a song of hope each day
Tho' the moments be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour alway
Who keepeth everyone in His care.

I must also include one more version that I just came across because it reminds me of listening to music with my Granny. I can remember from a very early age seeing my Granny covered in flour from making biscuits with her radio turned way up.
