ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 22ND, 2014
29 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
Sunrise: 7:24 am
Sunset: 5:03 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Go For a Ride Day is today. And, what a splendid time you will have! As the holidays approach, life becomes chaotic, and perhaps a bit stressful. Take a breather, and go for a relaxing ride. You don't need a destination to enjoy this day. But, you certainly can bring family or friends along for company.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

I will be going for a ride today as we will travel over to DS#6’s house for our annual Family Thanksgiving Feast. Thankfully the snow has quit for now but we do have some rain coming our way.
I love to go for rides, but the big highways like the one we’ll be on today are not my favorite place to drive. I like the country roads much better. Thanks to my BIL, my sisters and one of my nieces I got to enjoy a wonderful ride to Amish country yesterday. I’ll have pictures of that coming early next week. For me life in the slow lane is always better.
I’ll take lots of pictures today and share our family gathering when the real Thanksgiving Day comes. The pictures in this post are a few of our trip to Christmas in the Colonies the day after Thanksgiving last year.
I’ll be praying for safe travels for my family and all those traveling for Thanksgiving.
I hope you all have a super Saturday!
Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride !
32 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
Get a grip on any holiday parties now, before the December rush begins. Sending invitations early makes it more likely guests will be able to attend; having shopping and supply lists ready cuts down on party day trips to the store.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
I think the thing to do is enjoy the ride while you're on it.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 2 years and have now reached over 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.
2243. for family to visit and another trip to take today
2244. for DD and her hubby who will give me a ride, once again
2245. for DS#6 and his wife who will be our hosts today
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 !
ADVICE FOR TODAY
Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
