Life is a Special Occasion!
January 4th is Trivia Day. All those facts you picked up through daytime game shows can finally be put to good use when you astound your friends with your general knowledge! Trivia day is the perfect day to share all of those silly little facts that almost nobody knows, making this day a fun and interesting one to spend with friends or family
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Trivial things do matter... more people are killed each year by the bite of mosquitoes than are stepped upon by charging elephants.
The world famous trivia game, Trivial Pursuit, is thought to have sparked people’s fascination with trivia and competing to see who knows more odd facts about geography, history, art, science, sports and entertainment. I have to say that here at my house, it was always a fun and educational game to play. I think we had 3 different boxed sets of Trivial Pursuit here at one time. Maybe I still do. I haven’t seen them in a while, but somewhere if the storehouse of either the attic or the basement, I bet they are still there.
My favorite way to share trivia is to let you know what each day celebrates. Celebrations don’t have to happen because of a special occasions. Each day is a celebration in itself, but in case you can’t think of anything, I share some unique holidays to celebrate. Every day may not be a good one but there is something good to be found in every day.
Tonight we’ll be seeing the full Moon for January. The Full Wolf Moon. This January full moon rises north of due east around sunset, climbs highest in the sky around midnight and sets north of due west around sunrise. We may not see this moon at all due to clouds, but I have seen it almost full and it’s certainly been a bright spot in the sky.
Sunday’s are always special here at my house. It’s a day to rest and recoup. To refresh and relax. When my Sunday is good, the rest of the week will follow suit. I hope you all get some of that good R & R time in today. Tomorrow many will be going back work and school after nice holiday break.
Have a restful and relaxing Sunday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
The brain may die, but my compulsion for useless trivia lives on.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2369. for unique days to celebrate, every day is a gift
2370. for games that are fun, but also teach
2371. for Sundays, remember a Sunday well spent, brings a week of content.
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
