ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2ND, 2016
17 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:02 am
Sunset: 6:21 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today, is Old Stuff Day, in recognition of the all too common response. There’s nothing new here, it’s the same old stuff. To some, it could be suggestive of a boring time period, or a boring life style, but not for me.
Old Stuff Day is not a day to do the same old stuff. Rather, it's a time to recognize the boring nature of your daily routine, and make some exciting changes. Find new and different activities, projects, and hobbies. Attend an event. Do something, anything, different. You will be glad that you did!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The ordinary acts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.
Many of my days are filled with the same old stuff. But I like routines and doing the ordinary things. I never complain about ordinary days because sometimes the unordinary hasn’t been so nice. It’s nice, however, to be surprised when something good happens and the older I get I figure the less I know, so there is truly something new in my life every day. It’s nice to have those ordinary days where all is right in my world.
More and more I’m happiest here at home where nothing much bothers me and there’s no one to disturb my peace. The weather may get bad outside but inside it’s cozy and warm.
So I can happily say it’s the same old stuff here today !
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3640. for ordinary days, they are the best
3641. for a cozy comfortable home
3642. for something new to learn every day of my life
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
