ON THE BRIGHT SIDE

If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
It was on this date in 1958 that Tyrone Power, a Cincinnati, Ohio native, died at the age of 44. Power made 51 movies with box office hits such as The Mark of Zoro in 1940 and Witness for the Prosecution in 1957.
To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act in accordance with your thinking.
Johann von Goethe
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
We can act instead of being acted upon.
Stephen R. Covey
A lot of people talk about what they would like to do. Most really never do it. I have found it is better to do what you want rather than to be forced into what others want you to do. If we don’t take responsibility for our actions, someone else will do it for us.
Actually the only parts of me that are going south is what gravity is pulling down. I’m here for the duration of winter and am doing the best I can to find the bright side in every day.
Every day we see others going along with the crowd for lack of anything else to do. Not many take the initiative to make their own way. When youngsters want to be popular they think they have to do what everyone else is doing. I heard that one, over and over again, from my own children when they were young. But mom, everyone else is doing it. I couldn’t believe the things everyone else wanted to do.
I guess I’ve always been pretty much my own person and try to do what I think is best, best for me and for others too. Doing what is best isn’t always popular.
Your life is God’s gift to you; make it your gift to God.
I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.
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.
1133. for good things to do and to say
1134. for a furnace that is still working and keeps on running, it’s been terribly cold here
1135. for old movies, they are sometimes the best
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
