ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4TH, 2015
44 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:36 am
Sunset: 5:48 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Thank a Mailman Day. It's is your chance to say thanks to the guy, or gal, who delivers your mail. After all, they are there six days a week. The reliable postal worker is always there doing their job, regardless of the weather. They are a hardy lot.
Rain or shine, mailmen and mailwomen never fail to deliver!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
Inscription, New York City Post Office, adapted from Herodotus
It’s true our mail men and women are the best and we need to thank them. I know that for them it must seem like a thankless job as day in and day out they deliver the mail no matter what the weather.
More often the mail I get is junk mail. It’s a shame that someone has to venture in the snow and cold to deliver it. About the only thing I can say is that it helps to give work to the garbage men.
I’m thankful that my mailman will also pick up any outgoing mail I happen to have too. We used to have a mailbox on the corner where we could go and post mail, but it was taken away some years ago now so I’ve come to rely on the mail man or gal as the case may be.
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and say THANK YOU as often as you can!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
True thanksgiving emphasizes the Giver rather than the gifts.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. Sometimes it seems as if I’m repeating a lot of things that I’m thankful for, but no moment is really ever the same and every day is a new beginning. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2462. for the gift of faith and of trust in God
2463. for our mailmen and women
2464. for snow melt that works wonders on the ice.
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
The post office has a great charm at one point of our lives. When you have lived to my age, you will begin to think letters are never worth going through the rain for.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
