ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 29TH, 2016
19 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:05 am
Sunset: 6:19 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
It’s Leap Day! Leap Day is every fours years....almost. It's every four years except years ending with ’00' that are not divisible by 400. The year in which Leap Day occurs, is called a Leap Year. The earth rotates around the sun once every 365 and about 1/4 days. So, by adding an extra day every four years, we get mighty close to keeping the calendar consistent with the earth's annual trip around the sun.
The last Leap Day was on February 29, 2012, so enjoy this special day. It’s a free day that only comes around once every four years! Use it to catch up and slow down.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Take a leap. This is that free day you've been waiting for. It's an extra 24 hours you didn't have last year.
All any of us have is this one life and why not do something which makes you happy from the inside and not from the outside. Something which makes you want to get up in the morning and makes you look forward to the next day. There are times we need to remind ourselves that we don’t have to do what everyone else is doing. Don’t let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big. We just need to go out there and make that dream come true.
It’s looking like we’ll have one more day above freezing here then our temps will drop again. The good news is that by next weekend, we’ll be thawing out again. For several weekends in a row now we’ve had some warmer weather. It’s a nice pattern to be in, but hopefully very soon now, those below freezing days during the week will be a thing of the past too.
I hope you all have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Take a leap of faith and miracles will happen.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3634. for an extra day to enjoy this year
3635. for warmer days and sunshine
3636. for those leaps of faith that take us a little higher
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
