THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life--learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
Today is another long distance birthday celebration and as usual the card is in the mail. I miss out on so many celebrations but I did get to go to a party for two of my granddaughters yesterday and that was fun and we still have a couple of November birthdays coming up.
In the trivia for today I found out that it is Have a Party with Your Bear Day. This is one of several bear related holidays of which Teddy Bear Picnic Day is the most famous. Some celebration suggestions are to host a party where guests bring teddy bears or to take photos of oneself next to a stuffed bear while wearing a party hat. Another fun option might be a trip to a zoo or wildlife park, or learning more about these amazing animals while enjoying a piece of cake.
I’m not sure if my DIL likes bears or not but I’m hoping she’ll be enjoying a piece of birthday cake. All the way round it sound like a day to celebrate.
The pictures today are of our snow that came down on Thursday into Friday and there is still more coming our way they say.
I hope you all have a restful and relaxing Sunday. Other than going out to church I’ll be staying in and keeping warm.
38 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
Ready or not, the holidays are nearly here. We’re over half way there in our Countdown until Christmas and it's time to do a little status check on the progress we’ve made. During the next few weeks, the pace will slow down to match the season. Because we're doing more in other areas of our life, the Countdown will lighten the load.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Life is not measured by the breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away.
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.
2225. for DDIL#2, it’s her birthday today
2226. for the fact that I don’t live in the snow belt, they got 14 inches of snow
2227. for teddy bears, they make me smile
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

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.

ADVICE FOR TODAY
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

A bit of love from someone dear…
