Chapter 7, Page 13, Book 21

Life is a mixture and of light and shadow..  You cannot have one without the other.

Wise Old Saying

July 13th -Life is short, and time is swift; Roses fade, and shadows shift.

There is no light without shadow, just as there is no happiness without pain.

Isabel Ailende

From my daily devotionals … . A shadow is a dark area on a bright surface.  It is caused by something blocking the source of light. The outline of a shadow is called a silhouette and will have the shape as the object blocking its source.. As we know the sun casts shadows on the sun’s position in the sky.. So near the sunrise and the sunset we have long shadows and when the sun is directly overhead, as it is this time of year, shadows can appear very small.

Don’t be afraid of the shadows, it only means there’s a light nearby.

Amy Lee

There is no such thing as a perfect world, or having a perfect life. We simple do our best, as best we can.  We embrace the light and darkness, light and shadows as they come. The good and the bad make up our life.

Keep your face always  toward the sunshine  and the shadows will fall behind you.

Walt Whitman

You quoted: A shadow is a dark area on a bright surface..........
Sherry sat at our table this morning and discussed that very thing and tears were the result.

Sherry & jack thinking this morning (almost noon)
