For FRIDAY, October 23rd, 2009
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
OCTOBER 23rd, 2009
Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
JUST FOR TODAY
We all need to look for the silver linings in our day-to-day lives
Just for today: I will give whatever I am doing and whoever I am with the gift of my attention. Even the lowliest task or deed is made holy, joyous, and prosperous when it is filled with love
A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition
William Arthur Ward
IT’S FINALLY FRIDAY !!
I can truthfully say this was a long week for me and I’m glad that now I’ll have two days at home to recoup. All these things still sitting around my house that I brought home from the camper need to be stored in either the basement or the attic and then I want to get into preparations for Thanksgiving. The house needs a good cleaning for sure.
It’s supposed to rain most of the day and maybe tomorrow too so it’ll be good just to be home.
I did receive an e-mail from my friend whose sister had the surgery we were praying for and she said: Thank you and everyone else for the prayers. Please keep her in thoughts for a complete recovery. It will take a good 6 weeks or so we are told. Also if you wouldn’t mind, could you ask them to pray for those who are looking for a job.
I will continue to pray and will be including prayers for those out of work.
Take good care all!
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Gracious Lord, thank you for being the beacon of mercy and love that shines through our grief, and for sustaining us in our time of need. Your mercy sustains us in any adversity. In time of need you are always there for us.
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!

Nicolas Appert was born on this day in 1752 at Chalons-Sur-Marne, France. He was destined to become a great chef and confectioner -- and chemist and inventor. In 1809 the French government awarded Appert with twelve thousand francs for his contribution to the world. Nicolas Appert had, in his search to preserve food, invented a process of heating foods and sealing them in airtight containers. In 1812 he was bestowed with the title, Benefactor of Humanity. Just think, we still use his methods of food preservation today

Humor is the great thing, the saving thing after all. The minute it crops up, all our hardness’s yield, all our irritations, and resentments flit away, and a sunny spirit takes their place.
There is Sunshine in a Smile
Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain,
Laughter and pleasure, tear-drops and pain;
All days can’t be bright, but it’s certainly true,
There was never a cloud the sun didn’t shine through.
So just keep on smiling whatever betide you,
Secure in the knowledge God is always beside you.
And you’ll find when you smile your day will be brighter
And all your burdens will seem so much lighter.
For each time you smile you will find it is true
SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE will smile back at YOU!
And nothing on earth can make life more worthwhile
Than the sunshine and warmth of a beautiful SMILE.
Helen Steiner Rice
Take Home a Smile
Take home a smile; forget the petty cares,
The dull, grim grind of all the day’s affairs;
The day is done, come be yourself awhile:
Tonight, to those who wait, take home a smile.
Take home a smile; don’t scatter grief and gloom
Where laughter and light hearts should always bloom;
What though you’ve traveled many a dusty mile,
Footsore and weary, still take home a smile.
Take home a smile — it is not much to do,
But much it means to them who wait for you;
You can be brave for such a little while;
The day of doubt is done — take home a smile
And the very last one for today…
12 Ways to Keep Smiling
Hold on to your dreams, and never let them go.
Show the rest of the world how wonderful you are!
Give circumstances a chance, and give others the benefit of the doubt.
Wish on a star that shines in your sky!
Take on your problems one by one and work things out.
Rely on all the strength you have inside!
Let loose of the sparkle and spirit that you sometimes try to hide.
Stay in touch with those who touch your life with love!
Look on the bright side and don’t let adversity keep you from winning.
Be yourself, because you are filled with special qualities
that have brought you this far, and that will always see you through!
Keep your spirits up.
Make your heart happy, and let it reflect on everything you do!
The Lord says, I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name, when they call on me, I will answer, I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them.
It is when things are so uncertain about our lives that we can be certain that God has not abandoned us, but instead is forming us and making us more and more like himself. Be assured that no matter what comes your way, God is in control. God is near you. God will help you through. He is there for you always, ready to hold and comfort you.
So DO NOT give up. Keep holding your hands up to God and He will fill your cup as you do. When your hands get weak, He will help you hold them up for Him!
God loves you that much
