ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014
57 DAYS UNTIL SPRING!
150 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER!!!
Sunset: 5:31 pm
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
Today we take a step back and truly appreciate our children and grandchildren. It’s Celebration of Life Day! Each child and each life is to be held as a precious gift and should be treated with the highest respect and dignity.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take ourbreath away.
I’ve lived such a wonderful life and my children and grandchildren certainly do help to make that way. Holding a tiny baby and seeing them smile for the first time does take my breath away. Not only have I held my own but I’ve held my grandchildren in my arms too. The oldest is going to be 21 this year and the youngest is now 3 months old. And there will be one more coming our way this summer! I’ve been blessed with a large family and I do love each and every one of them. I celebrate life every day and my life wouldn’t be complete with out my family.
We are down in the single digits here again this week. Very cold nights and not much warmer during the day. Highs of 11 or 12 degrees have been the norm and strange as it seems, I’m looking forward to temps in the 20’s this coming weekend. When we got the subzero weather before it was only for 2 days. This week we are having a good 5 days worth. Not the -minus 12 degrees we had, but still close to zero. The only good thing is we haven’t seen any significant accumulations of snow, only light dustings that are slowly adding up. I’m trying to see the bright side! Hope you all are keeping warm.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Life: It is about the gift not the package it comes in.
Dennis P. Costea, Jr.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that 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.
1337. for my children, they are a blessing
1338. for my grandchildren, what bundles of JOY they are!
1339. for only light coatings of snow today, more is coming
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 are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
