As it is with most of my family’s birthdays, today is another long distance celebration and the card went out in the mail. None the less I’m sure it will be a very happy day for her!
The week ahead looks to be a pretty quiet one here at my house. I’ll be busy and probably have some fun, but the calendar is pretty blank with nothing special going on. You never know though what surprises might come my way. Each and every day seems to give me some reason to celebrate. In fact the days are never long enough for everything I want to do.
We don’t always need a specific reason or date to party. Life's a party and the fact that we have so much to live for, appreciate and share is reason enough! We don’t need to let the people we love know it only once a year. We can make sure that the people who mean the most to us, always know they are valued, appreciated and needed. Not only when we thoughtfully create a birthday card filled with wishes, blessings and thanks, but every day, expressing how lucky we feel to have them in our world.
The heat is on…or should I say the heat came on here at my house this past Saturday. It’s been chilly and I don’t like being cold at all. Warmth was needed and it was provided! Thankfully the old furnace is still working !
I hope your Monday is off to a great start. It’s another new week to make the most of !
78 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
Do yourself a favor and declutter tables, counters, mantels, shelves and the entire surface of your refrigerator before you decorate your home for Autumn holidays. October's falling leaves, Halloween's goblins, and Thanksgiving's turkeys and pilgrims will soon be decorating spaces here in my house, but first the clutter has to be cleared away.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
You can achieve all the things you want to do, but it's much better to do it with loved ones around you; family and friends, people that you care about that can help you on the way and can celebrate you, and you can enjoy the journey.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 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.
2102. for our Southern Belle, we celebrate her birthday today !
2103. for acorn squash, I’ll be baking some today
2104. for all the fresh veggies from the farmers roadside stand, it won’t be open much longer
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
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
