ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
APRIL 29TH, 2009
True happiness may be sought, thought, or caught -- but never bought
JUST FOR TODAY
We all need to look for the silver linings in our day-to-day lives
Just For Today: I will only sleep as much as I need to. Sleep is obviously important, but I won’t use the most important hours of my day dreaming
Sit next to a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. Sit on a red-hot stove for a minute, it seems like an hour. That's relativity
IT’S WEDNESDAY !!
And it is OVER THE HUMP DAY!
We’ve gone from t-shirts back to turtlenecks in one day. It really cooled down here with the rain that came in yesterday. We were in the 40’s overnight but we should see 60 today. I’ve got to say that is much better than 30 degrees. It is just not as good as 80 degrees. I know we don’t have that kind of warmth til July so I’ll be thankful for the 60’s.
With the warm weather we did have, I got really brave and took my flannel sheets off the bed. You know I love that flannel and fleece to keep warm, so I’m hoping the days of freezing weather are over at least.
Tonight is laundry night as I’ve been doing my weekend chores during the week so they are done for the weekend. The long range forecast is not looking real great with chances of rain for Friday and Saturday, but Sunday is looking sunny.
I will probably still head out to the camper unless it is pouring rain when I get out of work on Friday evening, then I’ll wait and leave early Saturday morning.
We had some wonderful birds chattering away in the tree tops there last weekend. I have no idea what they were, but the song they sang was rather loud and it looked like they were dancing away going up and down as they sat perched on the tree branches. I thought it sounded like they were saying bob o link…but I did check to see what kind of sound a Bob o link made and it was definitely not the sound I heard. I’m hoping I get a closer look at them this weekend.
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Lord Jesus, how can I keep from speaking of you? May my faithfulness to your will somehow spread Christ into the hearts of those around me
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

A social worker who had recently transferred from the big city to the mountains was touring her new territory. She came upon the tiniest cabin she had ever seen.
Intrigued, she knocked on the door.
A child's voice answered, Yep
Is your Father there?
Pa? Nope, he left before Ma came in.
Well, is your Mother there?
Nope, Ma left just before I got here.
Are you never together as a family?
Sure, but not here. This is the outhouse!"
I will...not forsake My people.
I Kings 6:13
The Lord is with us. And, since the Lord is near, everything is different. Everything!
You may be facing death, but you aren’t facing death alone; the Lord is with you. You may be facing unemployment, but you aren’t facing unemployment alone; the Lord is with you. You may be facing marital struggles, but you aren’t facing them alone; the Lord is with you. You may be facing debt, but you aren’t facing debt alone; the Lord is with you.
Underline these words: You are not alone.
Your family may turn against you, but God won’t. Your friends may betray you, but God won’t. You may feel alone in the wilderness, but you are not. He is with you.
