ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND, 2016
26 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:15 am
Sunset: 6:11 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Be Humble Day. It’s not a day to brag or to boast. Its not a time to talk about your success or accomplishments.
Be Humble Day can be a humbling experience. That's exactly the intent of today. Humbleness is a good thing, a virtue. People much prefer a humble person to a braggart. Practice humbleness today, and everyday. It will serve you well in life.
Important Exception: While you can't brag about yourself today, it is very appropriate to brag about your kids today, or any day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man given. Be grateful. Conceit is self given. Be careful.
I do love to brag about my children and grandchildren. They are truly the best part of me. When I think about what accomplishments I’ve made in life, I give all the credit to God. Everything I have or have done has been a gift from Him. I’d be nothing if it weren’t for the gift of Life. Being humble is usually pretty easy for me, but if on the odd chance I forget, the good Lord finds away to bring me humbly back down to earth very quickly. They say the only way to be humble is to be humbled and I’ve learned that lesson well.
Unfortunately, having a humble personality is viewed as a weakness by some our society, but being humble doesn't mean being a doormat. Not only does being humble mean that you do not think that you're better or more important than others. It means being respectful and appreciative of others.
After a warm weekend, we’re to cool back down in the 30’s today but I think it’s going to be a sunny day and that is always good !
I hope you all have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Pride slays thanksgiving, but an humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
Henry Ward Beecher
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3613. for strength that God gives me
3614. for patience, far too many times I take things into my own hands.
3615. for the willingness to try and for humility when I fail
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
If you're smart, you'll always be humble. You can learn all you want, but there'll always be somebody who's never read a book who'll know twice what you know.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
