ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
THURSDAY, JULY 18TH, 2013
67 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 6:11 am
Sunset: 8:58 pm
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
Whew! Midsummer is here, and the mercury is rising. Do you think you can fry an egg on the sidewalk? Try to fry on July 18th - it's Sidewalk Frying Day.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Practice fire safety - watch what you heat.
Oh yes, it is hot! We have had heat advisories here. The heat index values are expected to reach between 100 and 104 . It makes it feel even hotter that it is actually is. Everyone has been advised to avoid unnecessary activity during the heat of the day.
No doubt about it, my eggs will be fried in a skillet on the stove, but I imagine there are places you could fry one outside if you wanted. I remember that one year the folks on our news station showed frying an egg in a car. It worked. It's a good reminder too, for all of us, that we should never leave kids or pets in the car on a hot summer day or really any other day either.
I don't even like to be in my car on a hot summer day as the air conditioning isn't working very well right now. Thankfully I don't have anyplace I need to go for any kind of distance. Just short trips around here. I guess I'll not fry.
Try to stay cool and don't forget to drink plenty of liquids.
Just want to thank you for your prayers. DSIL's mom has a urinary infection and was given strong antibiotics and pain meds then sent home. I'm praying she'll soon be feeling much better.
Have a wonderful Thursday! Keep cool!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
It has done me good to be somewhat parched by the heat and drenched by the rain of life.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I am trying to count at least 3 things I'm thankful for each day and then in 1 year's time I'll have counted 1000 gifts. I’ll be sharing them and giving thanks to God for these gifts each day.
772. for eggs, very good for you
773. for cool and shady places to go
774. for air conditioning
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
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 !
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
