For Sunday, June 26th, 2016
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SUNDAY, JUNE 26TH, 2016
88 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Forgiveness Day which is a time to forgive and to be forgiven. The world will be a better place for this day.
Forgiving is a relieving process and not only on Forgiveness Day everyone should do that from time to time.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Let us forgive each other - only then will we live in peace.
Studies show that people who forgive are happier and healthier than those who hold resentments. I’ve known a lot of people that held on to resentment and never forgave mistakes or let go of the grudges they held. It’s a sad sad thing . I’ve learned to forgive and although it wasn’t easy at all, it does bring peace, not only to the one you forgive, but to yourself.
It’s supposed to be a hot sunny day in our party of the world with temps in the 90’s. On days like this it sometimes seems that the sun is very unforgiving. It’s relentless heat takes it’s toll. Remember to keep hydrated.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday !
Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.

WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
There is a food holiday to celebrate every day of the year!
It’s National Chocolate Pudding Day!
More than not I use instant pudding mix these days which requires no cooking but if you’d like to make it the old fashioned way, here’s a recipe to follow. Pudding is a favorite summertime dessert!
Quick Creamy Chocolate Pudding Recipe
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup Cocoa
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whipped topping, optional
Stir together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt in medium saucepan; gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils; boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla. Pour into individual dessert dishes. To avoid a skin from forming on top, press plastic wrap directly onto surface; serve warm or refrigerate at least 2 hours. Pudding will thicken as it cools. Garnish with whipped topping, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3985. for forgiveness, it’s a gift

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
