ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
THURSDAY, JANUARY 7TH, 2016
72 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:55 am
Sunset: 5:15 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore Day. It's a day to let is all out. Upset at the traffic, or the never ending frigid weather, or your cable TV's customer service, or that you didn't get what you wanted for Christmas? Well this is the holiday that encourages you to do something about it… If you know it’s time for a change and you’re ready to shout, I’m not going to take it anymore, it’s time for you to take control of the things that hold you back. Today is your day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I’m pretty content with my life right now, but that has not always been the case. There have been trying days in the past that have brought me to the end of my rope. It’s often when we reach the end of the rope that changes happen and I’ve found that the best changes begin with an attitude adjustment, an attitude of faith.
There are many times we look at our problems and they look so large. We look at our possessions and they seem so small. Yet, we always fail to factor God into the equation! So, He places us in situations where our faith in Him must be expanded! Our faith can move mountains. Letting God take control is the best place we can be. Just let Him amaze you with what He can do with your situation.
A healthy, positive attitude comes from within your heart, mind, body, and spirit. It can’t be bought. It can’t be manufactured. You can’t inject it, transfer it, or swallow it because you already possess it. It begins with a decision, one that you make.
Keep on going. Hang tough. Keep on Keeping on. Hang on a little longer with all you strength. Tie a knot in the end of the rope. Keep an Attitude of Faith.
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Gratitude is an attitude of faith not feeling.
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!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.
