THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
Ruth E. Renkel
I really don’t have many fears at all these days. That’s not to say that I’ve never been afraid, but I have learned that being afraid is like worrying, it’s a pretty useless thing.
Fear is just a form of worrying about the future, rather than focusing on what is happening right now. It is always a good day to remove fear from our lives and start being positive again. It is time to think, act, and be in the present moment.
We can look at what happens around us with a genuine and faith filled trust toward that future that we cannot see.
With Halloween right around the corner, decorations and scary sights are very popular. It seems everyone likes making fun of being scared. Spooky nights have come with it getting darker earlier. Truth be told, I don’t go out much at night and feel safer and cozier right here at home. The pictures today are of our little Xfactor once again. His delightful Halloween costume stole the show this past weekend and he won first prize. Not everything about Halloween is scary.
I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
71 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
The holidays just around the corner, so now's the time to make a quick check of bathroom supplies. Watch for sales on toilet paper, tissues, paper towels and soap. The season of coughs and sniffles will soon be upon us too so it’s good to make sure we have what’s needed.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
In God we Trust
Official motto of the United States
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.
2126. for my faith which puts a damper on any fears that come my way
2127. for Entemanns Pumpkin Donuts mmmm…good
2128. for a large head of cabbage which made several yummy dinners this week
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
