ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th, 2013
9 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunset: 7:43 pm
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
On this day in 1966 Florence E. Allen, the first woman in the state of Ohio to become a judge, died at her home in Cuyahoga County in Mentor at the age of 82.
History is herstory, too.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.
Women have played an important part in history, not just in recent times, but going back to the beginning of time. I think everyone knows the story of Eve and what happened in the garden… She changed history for all of us! Ha!
I've met many women who have had the best of both worlds, a career and a good home life too, and they have done a great job of it and I salute them for all they do. In my opinion, no matter where or what, a woman's work is never done.
The pictures in my post today are of what remains blooming here at my house. The flowers are fast fading and leaves are beginning to turn. It's very hard to believe that after some days in the mid to upper 90's here, they say by Friday we'll be in the low 60's. Fall is definitely coming our way.
I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Your talent is God's gift to you.
What you do with it is your gift back to God.
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.
941. for celebrations, past and present
942. for summer days, fast fading
943. for being a mom, the best career I ever had
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 !
There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
