THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Life is only traveled once; today's moment becomes tomorrow's memory. Enjoy every moment, good or bad, because the GIFT of LIFE is LIFE itself.
I doubt I’ll be seeing this DIL today as she just gave birth to our little Darling on the 12th. The very first picture was taken the day they came home from the hospital. She says she got the best birthday gift ever! Both the new mom and baby are doing fine. I hope to see them both soon.
This is the 4th August birthday and we still have a couple more to come. I told you August was a busy month here at my house. Today will join the ranks of one of the hottest days we’ve had this summer. Very close to 90 degrees. Another day I’m very grateful for the air conditioning.
I’ll be off to church as usual this morning and then home to prepare dinner. Thankfully it will be mostly done in the crockpot. Taking it slow and easy on these hot sultry summer days.
I hope you all have a RELAXING and restful Sunday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.

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