ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
JANUARY 25th, 2010
And its Compliment Day. Today is a great opportunity to say something positive about the people you come into contact with. Everyone has good attributes. ...that's right....... everyone.
My Grandma always said: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. After a long search for something good, if you just can't find a compliment for them, then silence is golden
We are all students of life and we can become so accustomed to what we already know and how we behave, that we do not want anything new. In His Word, Jesus is telling all that this is how He intends for us to live out His calling.
Look up at the Lord with gladness and smile; your face will never be ashamed.
Psalm 34: 6

. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
It is always fun doing something with someone you love and I’
m feeling the effects of being by myself far too much these days. Maybe that is why January is dragging on and on for me. I’m looking forward to more days w
hen I’ll have someone to do things with.
This time at home is not being wasted by any means as there is much to do here that often gets forgotten about once the weather gets nice and I start camping again. The nice thing about living alone is that I can take it all
at my pace and not have to worry about working around what others are doing.
I have so much to do that truthfully I probably won’t live long enough to do it all. But I certainly am trying.
You may have seen video of children in very poor countries laughing and playing, unconcerned that they should have more to be happy about. They
are happy because they are playing, because they have their friends and family, and some food to eat that day. Everyone has the right to be happy, and if they can be in their situation, shouldn't we?
Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, ma
y alight upon you
COUNTING THE DAYS
No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy the sunlight today, mix good cheer with friends today, then enjoy it and bless God for it. Do not look back on happiness or dream of it in the future. You are only sure of today; do not let yourself be cheated of it
Henry Ward Beecher
