ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23RD, 2014
59 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER!!!
Sunrise: 6:35 am
Sunset: 8:16 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Take a Chance Day. Life is filled with risks. To get what you want, sometimes you have to take a chance. And, today is created to do just that. Today is the day to take a leap of faith on Take a Chance Day. Choose your goal and go for it!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Don't put off your happy life.
You never know what might happen if you take a chance, wonderful things could occur. You never know how far you'll go or what you'll get if you don't try. Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise.
Sometimes life is all about taking chances. Doors open, doors close. Taking a leap of faith into the unknown can be terrifying However, in order for us to really take advantage of all we are capable of and all that life has to offer, we have to take some chances.
I read somewhere that there is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing. Life is filled with opportunities and potential. That is one of the greatest things it offers to each and every one of us.
I did get out for my oil change and car wash on Tuesday afternoon. we got very little rain and the skies cleared out. The honest guys at the oil change place said they’d be ripping me off if they gave me an oil change, they said come back in another 3000 miles. They checked everything else out for me and checked the air on the tires though. I usually get the oil changed April and October. It looks like it’ll probably be October this year before I’ll need one as I don’t travel many miles at all. It is nice to know there are still honest people in this world.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and take a chance!
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Every day you are alive is a special occasion. Every minute, every breath, is a gift from God.
Mary Manin Morrissey
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for a little over a year and have now reached 1600 gifts. On my way to 2000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
1604. for the chance to do something new
1605. for all the risks I took in life
1606. for the opportunity to broaden my faith
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
