For Tuesday, July 7th, 2015
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
TUESDAY, JULY 7TH, 2015
78 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Sunrise: 6:03 am
Sunset: 9:05 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
July 7th is Tell The Truth Day. Imagine a world where nobody lies, says anything misleading, or does anything dishonest. Tell The Truth Day aims to achieve this for just one day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
It isn’t always easy to tell the truth, but I’ve found that being truthful is best for all concerned. Sometimes the truth hurts but better to hurt a little than to be deceived, I’m thinking.
Some think a little white lie is better than hurting someone, but for me there is no difference in a white lie or a black one. The way of truth and love has always won. Telling the truth is always the right answer and telling the truth with love is the best way.
Everything we say needs to be both wise and loving. Remember that love does not envy or boast, and is not arrogant or rude. It is not loving to avoid giving people the truth. It is not wise, however, to think we have discharged our burden by uttering true statements without speaking them lovingly.
It seems to me that problem is often in knowing what is the truth and what isn’t the truth. Something we knew to be true today may not be the truth of tomorrow. Things change at a rapid pace and things revealed today may shed a new light on tomorrow.
One thing that I know, maybe two, is that truth wins and love is never ending.
Our temps here have risen but we’re to have some rain today that is accompanied by a cool front so for a few days to come we’ll be a little cooler. July is starting off quite pleasant by far.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday !
DD has asked for prayers for her FIL as he’ll be having surgery on his leg this Friday. He took a fall this past weekend and apparently did some damage as there is no blood flow going to his foot. Please join me in praying for him. May the dear Lord bless him with a successful surgery and guide the hands of the doctor caring for him. We pray in Jesus name. Amen.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
To love the truth is to refuse to let oneself be saddened by it.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
2922. for the truth, it always wins
2923. for love, where would we be without it
2924. for our Ohio weather, quite pleasant right now
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
Almighty and eternal God,
Protect our military

AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT’s
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

ADVICE FOR TODAY
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
