For Thursday, October 1st, 2009
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
OCTOBER 1ST, 2009
Did you ever see an unhappy horse? Did you ever see a bird that had the blues? One reason why birds and horses are not unhappy is because they are not trying to impress other birds and horses
JUST FOR TODAY
We all need to look for the silver linings in our day-to-day lives
Just for today: I will thank God for this moment and for the wholeness and peace in the here and now
Success is getting what you want.
Happiness is wanting what you get
IT’S THURSDAY !!
Today we begin a new month. October has arrived and with it is supposed to come some sunshine. About 5:30 yesterday evening we did see some sun peep through. What a welcome sight. The radio news at work kept saying today would be sixty and sunny so we’ll see…
This evening I’ll be going to my Bible Study which will be the first Thursday of every month now. Our pastor has decided to do things a little differently this year so on the 1st Thursday we’ll have Bible Study. On the 2nd Thursday we will be having a Session about questions concerning our faith and the last Thursday of the Month we are doing a book club. This month we are reading My Sister’s Keeper. I just got it Wednesday so I’m not sure what it is all about, but will start reading it soon. Last month I guess they discussed The Shack which is really a thought provoking book which I did read but I did not attend the Book Club meeting as I was at the camper.
DS#1 called Wednesday evening to let me know that they would not be camping this coming weekend as the weather is not looking very good and they have a ton of stuff to do at home. So we will celebrate our Sweethearts birthday the following weekend. That weekend is also the Fall Festival at the Campground which also includes a Chili cook off. I’ll be making my chili in the crock pot and it’ll be the MILD variety…DSIL does the hot chili.
That’s the news from home as I know it!
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Lord, help us to face life's troublemakers

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!

See how many of these well known phrases you can recognize without the use of a dictionary or a thesaurus . . . .
Scintillate, scintillate, asteroid minific
Surveillance should precede caltation
Members of an avian species of identical plumage congregate
Pulchritude possesses solely cutaneous profundity
It is fruitless to become lachrymose over precipitately departed lacteal fluid
Freedom from incrustations of grime is contiguous to rectitude
The stylus is more potent than the scimitar
It is fruitless to attempt to indoctrinate a superannuated canine with innovative maneuvers
Eschew the implement of correction and vitiate the scion
The temperature of the aqueous content of an unremittingly ogled saucepan does not reach 212 degrees F.
All articles that coruscate with resplendence are not truly suriferous.
Where there are visible vapors having their prevalence in ingnited carbonaceous materials, there is conflagration.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
Look before you leap.
Birds of a feather flock together.
Beauty is only skin deep.
No use crying over spilt milk.
Cleanliness is next to godliness.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
Can't teach an old dog new tricks.
Spare the rod and spoil the child.
A watched pot never boils.
All that glitters is not gold.
Where there's smoke, there's fire.
SEIZE THE MOMENT
Because North Americans cram so much into their lives, we tend to schedule our headaches.
Were your faith the size of a mustard seed you could say to this mulberry tree: Be uprooted and planted in the sea and it would obey you
Faith is all about trust and at the end of the day it is all about a relationship with God. One never loses ones faith but one can stop shaping our lives by it. It also happens to be the greatest power in the world and that's why Jesus compared it to a mustard seed. With faith what looks impossible can become possible
As perennials fade away, mark their locations with small sticks so that you can avoid disturbing them with early spring cultivating
80 DAYS UNTIL WINTER !
Delight yourself in the Lord
and He will give you the desires of your Heart
May there be a miracle in YOUR life today
and may you have the EYES to SEE it!
I Love You All !!!
Be Blessed !!!
