ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
JULY 2nd, 2010
Today is Halfway Point of 2010. At noon today, the first half of 2010 (182½ days) will be gone. Optimists will quickly realize they have 182½ days left. It just doesn't seem possible that 1/2 of the year 2010 is over already
Time does fly when you are having fun!
Time with God is as necessary as breathing.
The psalmist wrote, O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water
Lord, may I become more aware of your presence in my life. May I discover that you do walk with me each day of my life, accompanying me in darkness as well as in light, in sadness as well as in joy. May your Spirit lead me to trust and come to know that you keep your word and are always faithful and loving. I place myself and my future into your hands
May I discover that you do walk with me each day of my life, accompanying me in darkness as well as in light

to your hands
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.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters and Paramedics and EMT's
GOD BLESS YOU!
It's going to be another beautiful day here in northern Ohio. It's been very nice to have temps in the 70's and sunshine! Today we may get up to 80 but that is stil
l nice. This kind of weather is truly a blessing for a holiday weekend.
I noticed that quite a few have started their holiday early and the campground is starting to fill up already. There will be plenty more com
ing in today I'm sure.
DS#5 and his wife came in here around 6:00 last evening and really surprised me. I didn't know when to expect them but thought they wouldn't be here till today. We wound up going out to eat dinner and then sat around the ca
mp fire for awhile
DS#2 and family will be vacationing for the next couple weeks and he says DS#4 and family will be getting together with them for a long weekend too. I'm glad they were able to get together and am praying for safe travels
for all of them
COUNTING THE DAYS
Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever! There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did! And because I did I'm going to celebrate!
Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make me stronger.
I will go through this day with my head held high, and a happy heart.
I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts: the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the birds. Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice.
Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people. I'll make someone smile. I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know.
Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems down. I'll tell a child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for them and how much they mean to me.
Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me.
I'll remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and his Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.
Tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I will praise God for these magnificent treasures.
As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow, I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life. And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child, excited with expectation because I know tomorrow is going to be ......
The Best Day Of My Life!
83 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
A bit of love from someone near…
