ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2014
5 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 7:10 am
Sunset: 7:34 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Happy Birthday to our not so little Ray of Sunshine boy today!
May the dear Lord Bless you today and always !
A birthday prayer for you today:
My prayer for you is a dream
big enough to capture your heart,
bright enough to illuminate your mind
and deep enough to satisfy your spirit
May you find the strength to pursue it
and be enriched by it across the years.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A grandchild reaches for your hand and touches your heart.
This birthday is another long distance celebration with the card going out in the mail. I was blessed to visit with him this past Spring but from the pictures I’ve seen he’s grown a lot since then. The pictures today are from last fall when they went to visit a pumpkin farm.
Those pumpkins are starting to pile up around here and soon will be decorating porches all around. I used to get a real one but now stick with the plastic variety for decorating.
For the most part it has been a really chilly week here and reminds me of October. Temps have gone down into the 40’s at night and we’ve had some highs in the mid 60’s . As days grow shorter, and nights grow longer and cooler, the leaves will begin to paint the landscape with Nature's autumn palette. We’ve seen just a few colorful trees up till now but after this cool spell we’ll be seeing a lot more.
This weekend is the Apple Festival in our little town and very often it signals the start of cooler weather here. They say though that Saturday will be a beautiful day with temps close to 80. After that we are to cool down to the 60’s again.
I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Grandparents and grandchildren are God's gift to each other.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 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.
2045. for our Ray of Sunshine, we celebrate his birthday today!
2046. for colorful fall leaves and pumpkins too
2047. for sunny days, even though they are now much cooler ones
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
If life is a roller coaster, then being a Grandma is the whole amusement park!
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
