ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25TH, 2013
87 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
91 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
Sunset: 7:20 pm
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
On this day in 1918, Franklin County native Eddie Rickenbacker earned the Medal of Honor. He was a WWI flying ace. His decorations included nine Distinguished Service Crosses.
We do not remember days; we remember moments.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday.
The reason things happen they way they do is often based on something from the past. We learn about history, so we can attempt to make the present and future a better place to live. By learning about our past we can make better choices and not make the same mistakes twice.
Maybe we don't learn those lessons well enough at times, but I think that we do learn. I've had to learn some things over and over, but eventually they do sink in.
Good things come to those who still hope even though they’ve had disappointments, to those who still believe even though they’ve failed, to those who still love even though they’ve been hurt. So never regret anything that has happened in your life; it cannot be changed, undone or forgotten. Take it all as lessons learned and move on . By learning about the past we learn our future.
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

COUNTING MY GIFTS
Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are,
the things you never want to lose.
From the television show The Wonder Years
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.
980. for good memories
981. for lessons learned
982. for my pumpkin spice coffee this morning.
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
