Life is a Special Occasion!
July 14 is Pandemonium Day, an annual celebration of chaos and disorder. Pandemonium Day is a reminder of the chaos and uncertainty that marks most of our lives. It’s also a day to to find ways to take a pause from the daily grunt and find ways to bring order and equilibrium in our lives.
Don’t agonize, just organize!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Sometimes we let life guide us, and other times we take life by the horns. But one thing is for sure: no matter how organized we are, or how well we plan, we can always expect the unexpected.
We all have plans, wishes and expectations of how people will act or how an event, our day and our lives will turn out. Unfortunately, things don't always work out as we hope. Too often, things seem to twist and turn in ways we did not expect or foresee. Regardless of the event, it's all how we think and react to it.
One way to reduce stress is to learn to expect the unexpected. Believing that people, situations and things are perfect is a recipe for failure. I’ve learned to go with the flow and to be very flexible.
I know that I certainly do not have control of my life, but I do know the One that does. It’s not up to me to take control of the universe. I can relax knowing God is in control and there is a reason and a purpose for what ever happens.
There has been nothing chaotic going around here at my house lately. The only pandemonium going on seems to the riot of colors going on with the beautiful summer flowers. Thankfully, I’ve been enjoying some lovely summer days. If it’s too hot I prop up my feet on the front porch. Staying cool and living life in the slow lane have taken over here.
I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday !

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
