ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SUNDAY, JANUARY 10TH, 2016
69 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:55 am
Sunset: 5:18 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Peculiar People Day. It’s a day in honor of uniquely different people. Unordinary, extraordinary, unusual, strange, odd, uncommon, intriguing, different, abnormal, and quirky.... These are all things that describe the word peculiar. Most of these characteristics can be viewed as good, or not so good. Today is a day to look for the good in your peculiar acquaintances.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition
In a way we are all a little peculiar. We are all different. There are no two alike ! We all have different likes and dislikes and we all have different talents. Thankfully there are those that dare to be peculiar…different to the point of making great discoveries and doing great things.
It takes lots and lots of different kinds of people to make this world go around. From those who would aspire to be president to those that mop floors. We all have different jobs to do. The important thing is that whatever we do, we do it well.
According to the weather man we’re going to go from a high of 42 degrees today down to a low of 16. That is a big drop in temps. Snow showers should start this afternoon and we could have 1-3 inches of snow here. We’ll see...
Pictures today are from our snowy winter of 2015.
Keep warm and keep safe everyone !
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Every human being has a work to carry on within, duties to perform abroad, influence to exert, which are peculiarly his, and which no conscience but his own can teach.
William Ellery Channing
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3484. for all the peculiar people in my life
3485. for a warm place to be on a cold day
3486. for weathermen that warn us when bad weather is on the way.
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS

AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters

ADVICE FOR TODAY
Nature made us individuals, as she did the flowers and the pebbles; but we are afraid to be peculiar, and so our society resembles a bag of marbles, or a string of mold candles. Why should we all dress after the same fashion? The frost never paints my windows twice alike.
Lydia Maria Child
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
