ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH, 2016
30 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:21 am
Sunset: 6:06 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Battery Day, which is an opportunity to celebrate a vital invention. Batteries are used everywhere, from smoke alarms to headsets. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and power capacity, to fit a wide array of needs.
Just imagine where the world would be without batteries. We'd still be using a crank to start our automobiles. We'd have to cart around long extension cords to bring the boombox to the beach. And, forget about hand held games. They'd never be popular tied to an electrical outlet.
Yesiree, batteries are electrifying!
Today is a good time to appreciate the power of batteries in our everyday life.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Sometimes the best way to recharge our batteries is to unplug them.
There is no doubt about it. I do appreciate having batteries to use. One of the biggest is probably my car battery. I’m thankful that it works when I go out to start my car. I haven’t driven much lately and I’m thinking today might be the day to get out and recharge my battery. I need to take a little drive now and then to do so.
Just like my car battery needs recharging, I’m thinking I need a little recharging too. My get up and go, got up and went and I’d love to have it back.
They say today is supposed to be mostly sunny and that should perk things up a bit for all of us. After so many cloudy gray days, sunshine and blue skies sounds wonderful. I hope it helps recharge my batteries !
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
A good laugh recharges your battery.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3601. for batteries, always appreciated
3602. for sunshine, badly needed
3603. for laughter, always good medicine
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
