HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE TODAY!
May the dear Lord bless you today and always!
Some people are so much sunshine to the square inch.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.
James Matthew Barrie
This is the last of our September birthdays. Our little Ray of Sunshine isn't so little any more for sure. Once again I celebrated this birthday by sending out a card and not in person. Thankfully we do have the internet and his mom always makes sure that I have plenty of pictures so I know what they are all doing.
The nickname I choose for this grandson was chosen because like his older brother, my Sunshine Boy, he has the greatest smile. Both of them have delighted me with lots of smiles, laughter and joy since they were born. I don't think I've ever seen such happy boys. They do light up my life with a lot of sunshine!
After some cooler days here in the 60's, we'll be a little warmer now , after today, with temps in the high 70's. Any days in the 90's are now a thing of the past and very soon the ones in the 70's will be too. The days are much shorter and we have almost equal hours of daylight and darkness. Along with that, I'm trying to soak in some sunshine while we still have it.
Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
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.
956. for our Little Ray of Sunshine
957. for Smiles!
958. for sunshine and warmth
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS

our troops and HIS wisdom for their

in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.

Just living is not enough... one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Andersen
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
