ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH, 2014
45 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
Sunrise: 7:05 am
Sunset: 5:17 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Men Make Dinner Day. This holiday is aimed at the men who never cook. Rules include a no interference policy for the women of the household, no feeding the resulting meal to the dog, and no barbecuing.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Soup is liquid comfort.
I know a lot of men that regularly make dinner and that are good cooks, so for them today is not a problem. For those that don’t, today could be a problem.
With all the prepackaged and frozen meals that are available today, I’d think that just about anyone could make a good meal that would satisfy most anyone. A classic quick meal, soup, and a salad are quick and easy to prepare. Plus, if you have a variety of canned or frozen soups on hand, everyone can choose their own. Create a salad bar for the kids to build their own salads too. It’s much more fun to eat a salad when you’ve designed it yourself.
Eating soups and salads for dinner is also a great way to get more vegetables into our diets and that is always a good thing.
I had a surprise visitor at my back door the other day. The praying mantis pictured below was right outside the door and looked like he wanted to come in. I safely moved him to a nearby bush so I could get in .
I hope you all have a great day ! Happy Thursday!
48 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
To celebrate the time change, make sure you change the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Here at my house I also need to change the battery in my thermostat.
Please join me in praying for DD and her family today as they will be saying goodbye to one their loving and faithful dogs. She has been so much a part of the family that we will all miss her. May the dear Lord bless and comfort them at this time of sadness and sorrow.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.
Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright
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.
2195. for a hot bowl of soup on a cold day
2196. for batteries that keep our smoke alarms working
2197. for surprise visitors
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
Never argue at the dinner table, for the one who is not hungry always gets the best of the argument.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
