Today is May Day. The first of May is celebrated around the world. It has a number of meanings. In many other countries it is a celebration of spring and the coming of summer. It is celebrated with many spring flowers, many of them blooming right in your own backyard.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
If someone shows you their true colors don't try to repaint them
May truly is a month of flowers to delight in. The lilacs will be blooming, the roses will once again appear and here at the beginning of the month I am still enjoying daffodils and the tulips have opened up revealing their true colors..
It seems rare that even a minority of people show their true colors. Most of the time, it’s quite hard to find anyone in daily life who is willing to stick their neck out and be authentic. Revealing our true colors means that we show who we really are. I know lots of people that keep that to themselves and only show the part they want others to see. If you show your true colors, you do something which shows what your real attitudes and qualities are.
In life, there are those who don’t truly value what it means it to be true to themselves or others. With many of us who are good hearted to those without expecting anything in return sometimes find out who truly are there for us through good and bad times.
As in all things we have choices to make and our attitude to what happens in life can make or break how we think about most every thing. I think that showing an attitude of gratitude reveals a lot of what our true colors are.
I hope you all have a great day and enjoy the wonderful month of May !

I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 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.
1628. for a new month to enjoy. Welcome May!
1629. for all the beautiful colors all around this time of year. Winter was so white for so long.
1630. for an attitude of gratitude, It makes everything seem like a gift.
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 ALL !
Don't sacrifice your peace trying to point out someone's true colors. Lack of character always reveals itself in the end.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
