John Heisman, the innovative football coach for whom the Heisman trophy was named, was born this day in Cleveland, Ohio in 1869. Heisman implemented the audible 'Hike' as a signal to start play.
Though no one can go back and make a brand new star
t, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
I had to put the picture of the deer crossing sign in my post today. I know that around here there are a lot of them. Not right here in my part of town so far, but just outside the city limits they are every where. The early morning and just before dusk is the time to really watch out for them, but I did have one cross the road right in front of me one day this past summer in the middle of the day. Any time is really a good time to be alert and watchful. I was thankful that my reflexes still work just fine and no damage was done to the deer or to my car.
It is wonderful that we all get a fresh start, a new beginning every morning. If yesterday didn't go just right, today is a day to start over and make the best of it.
You may have noticed that I've included the countdown till Thanksgiving now. One of my online friends reminded me that I should have that listed too. Hopefully I can keep on track counting all these days for you all. All I can say is that I'll try.
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
Please join me in praying for some near and dear ones for comfort today. May our dear Lord bless and comfort them as they are going through a difficult time right now.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
The best way to get something done is to begin.
I have counted at least 3 things I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1064. for a new beginning every day
1065. for warning signs
1066. for friendly reminders
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
