ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
On July 17th, many folks celebrate Wrong Way Day. Why bother to stop and ask for directions on a journey, when it can be considerably more adventurous to simply wing it?
Remember, if you’re headed in the wrong direction, God allows U-turns!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying... that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.
Alexander Pope, in Swift, Miscellanies
There is a wrong way of doing things and a right way. Everything depends on what choice we make in life. The thing is that we shouldn't ever be so caught up in the rules that we leave no leeway for change.
We shape and order our existence by the hundreds of decisions we make each day, Being worried over not wanting to make the right move at the wrongtime has made many of us hesitant to make decisions. It’s not every day that we make big decisions, but every day is filled with seemingly insignificant choices that have the potential to completely change our lives.
Every day I say a little prayer asking for guidance and protection, not only for me but for those I love. I think it's the best way I can start the day. I can't trust myself to know I'm on the right road without a little help from above. With the good Lord's help I pray I'll make the right decisions.
I've made mistakes when I try to do things on my own and hope that they have make me a little wiser than I was yesterday. I've found that just winging it is not a good decision for me.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday! May all your decisions find you on the right side of the road.
Please join me in praying for DSIL's Mom today. She hasn't been feeling well and was sent to the ER yesterday by her doctor for some tests. At this point I don't know if she was admitted or not. She had similar problems a year ago. May the dear Lord bless her with healing and may she have a speedy recovery.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Lord, where we are wrong, make us willing to change; where we are right, make us easy to live with.
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.
769. for guidance when I need it
770. for answered prayers
771. for mistakes that have made me wiser
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 !
If everything comes your way, you are in the wrong lane.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
