ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18TH, 2014
4 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 7:11 am
Sunset: 7:32 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Ahoy, Matey! Did you know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day? It's a day just for fun, a day to let out the pirate in each of us. Practice up your 'pirate-speak' in anticipation of this day. The conversation will be lively, and you don't want to be left behind. Today, everyone will be talking the talk, if not walking the walk. It is not a requirement to dress like a pirate today. Just talk like one.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Every generation welcomes the pirates from the last.
Today is a fun day but there were days that pirates weren’t much fun at all. Pirates were actually pretty scary people. The skull and cross bones is a pirate symbol that would warn of danger. Today’s pirates use different technology and skills, but their attacks are as scary as they have always been. There's a new type of internet piracy called phishing. It's pronounced fishing, and that's exactly what these thieves are doing: fishing for your personal financial information. What they want are account numbers, passwords, Social Security numbers, and other confidential information that they can use to loot your checking account or run up bills on your credit cards. In the worst case, you could find yourself a victim of identity theft.
Remember: Never provide your personal information in response to an unsolicited request, whether it is over the phone or over the internet. Emails and Internet pages created by phishers may look exactly like the real thing.
The pictures today are of our little Xfactor, on his first birthday all dressed up like a pirate.
Hope you all enjoy the day but look out for those pirates too.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Gratitude is the best attitude.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for over almost 2 years and have now reached 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2048. for cute pirates and fun times
2049. for cool but sunny days
2050. for warnings that make us aware
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!
ADVICE FOR TODAY
There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island, And best of all, you can enjoy these riches every day of your life.
