ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
OCTOBER 25TH, 2009
If you're called upon to give advice, you should know that it is like snow: The softer it falls, the deeper it goes
JUST FOR TODAY
We all need to look for the silver linings in our day-to-day lives
Just for today: I will express compassion wherever possible. I will pray that my smallest acts combined with others will create a world at peace, a world that works for all.
Never let yesterday use up too much of today
IT’S SUNDAY !!
It is R & R day and I’m taking it slow and easy this morning. I did get a lot done yesterday so today will be a day of rest more than work for sure.
They say we may see the sun today! I’m in need of some of that. I don’t know if it will be warm enough to spend much time outdoors but just seeing the sunshine will be great.
I’ll be off to church as always a little bit later this morning! It does feel good to be back in my home church. The one by our campground is nice and all but I’ve spent so many years at the one here where I live that I call it home.
I talked with DS#2 yesterday and he’s back from his trip safe and sound. Next month he’ll be traveling for work again. They do keep him busy for sure.
The week ahead will be pretty quiet here. I’ll hopefully get my haircut Tuesday after work and Thursday evening is Trick or Treat for us.
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Heavenly Lord, bless us each time we open the Bible and pray.
In Jesus' name
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!

Thoughts on Friendship
If you should die before me, ask if you could bring a friend.
If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live, without you.
True friendship is like sound health; the value of it is seldom known until it is lost.
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
My father always used to say that when you die, if you've got five real friends, then you've had a great life.
If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't jump with them, I'd be at the bottom to catch them.
Hold a true friend with both your hands.
I'll lean on you and you lean on me and we'll be okay.
Friendship is one mind in two bodies.
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.
Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say.
Best friends listen to what you don't say.
A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.
We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little bit of each other everywhere.
Friends are God's way of taking care of us.
Strangers are just friends waiting to happen.
Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the bones
Every person, young or old, famous or unknown, large or small, black or white, successful or less successful, male or female, who receives encouragement is changed by it
A word of encouragement can be uplifting, it can strengthen and you simply never know when a few sincere words can have an impact on someone’s life
A lie has no legs to stand on, but it gets places
57 DAYS UNTIL WINTER !
61 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
173 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
Delight yourself in the Lord
May there be a miracle in YOUR life today
and may you have the EYES to SEE it!
I Love You All !!!
Be Blessed !!!
