ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
OCTOBER 20TH, 2010
If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side
Have you had your Vitamin D yet today? Well then make a point of it! It's one of the vitamins that, along with calcium and a healthy lifestyle, helps prevent Osteoporosis, a degenerative bone disease.
A glass of milk for everyone!
If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if your have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need, even if it is not all you want.
Every Boy Scout knows the practical wisdom of being prepared. The reality of life is that we all have work to do. We all must deal with the mundane tasks of life. Jesus tells us that we must constantly be prepared for his return.
When we are faithful in the little tasks and promises we make, we learn to be faithful in the bigger and more important responsibilities and tasks entrusted to us.
Be the best that you can be!
The Lord speaks of peace to his people
NEW IN THE KITCHEN
It's National Brandied Fruit Day
One must not forget one’s traditions. And one tradition that seems to have been lost with the changing times is the Christmas Pudding. Still served in the UK as dessert, this brandied fruit cake is usually served with brandy poured on top t
hen set aflame. That's right, this dessert is set on fire. I can't i
magine why we don't eat these more often...
Many households have their own recipe for Christmas pudding, some handed down through families for generations. Essentially the recipe brings together what traditionally were expensive or luxurious ingredients - notably the sweet spices that are so important in developing its distinctive rich aroma
Traditionally puddings were made on or immediately after the Sunday before Advent. The day became known as Stir-up Sunday. Traditionally everyone in the household, or at least every child, gave the mixture a stir, and made a wish while doing so.
It was common practice to include small silver coins in the pudding mixture, which could be kept by the person whose serving included them. Charles Dickens describes the scene in the Christmas Carol.
Father, I pray that your faithfulness Lord, will continually grow
strong in me every day of my life. I pray that my faithfulness will not only strengthen me but everyone I touch and inspire others to greater faithfulness too.
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 ALL!
A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book
Most days I do laugh a lot. You know laughing at myself is one of my best habits. Oh my, the ordinary things are very often extra ordinary in my life. How can life ever be boring is a mystery to me. Every moment is filled with delights . I love watching the leaves fall and my mums bloom.
Life in the land of the Poor but Happy is wonderful!
COUNTING THE DAYS
The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest and air
Exercise and diet
These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.
62 DAYS UNTIL WINTER!
66 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
177 DAYS UNTIL CAMPING SEASON BEGINS
Keep looking ON THE BRIGHT SIDE of things.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone near…
