THOUGHT FOR TODAY
We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon.
Although I do enjoy living where I do on a street here in town where everything is pretty much close and handy, I do miss being in the country where you can see much more on the horizon. I cannot imagine living where skyscrapers would mare my view, but many do.
I see the sun rise and set here each day over the tree tops in my neighborhood. Those leaves on the trees will soon be changing. I’ve already seen some color changes and also some fallen leaves along the streets here and before we know it the trees will be bare and there will be lots of leaves to rake too.
So for now I’m thankful for their beauty and that my view from the porch includes their glorious array.
I hope you all have a GREAT day ! Happy Thursday
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting — a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3094. for fabulous sun rises and sunsets
3095. for a new horizon every day
3096. for trees and their beauty
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS

our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Almighty and eternal God,

AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters

ADVICE FOR TODAY
The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
