For Saturday, February 4th, 2017
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 4TH, 2017
44 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Wear Red Day which is your chance to help spread the word about Heart disease, and make sure that your friends and family can start taking the first steps to better heart health.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
Guard it. Do not overburden it.
Our hearts guide and direct all that we do. Every word that comes out of our mouth starts in the heart. All of our actions and choices are driven by the desires of of our hearts. Guarding our heart means that we are in control of our thoughts and what we allow or minds to dwell on. It’s our thoughts and actions which dictate and influence what we feel and the things we do.
The weather roller coaster continues. Starting today we’re to warm up a little each day here until next Tuesday, when we’ll be close to 50 degrees. After that we’ll go down again but all in all it’s not looking bad at all here. It’s a mild winter for us so far.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
It’s Homemade Soup Day!
Here’s a quick and easy recipe to make your own:
32 oz Chicken Broth
4 c water
3 cups bite size chicken, cooked
2 t seasoning
1/2 of a 12 oz. bag egg noodles
2 c frozen vegetables
Salt and pepper
In large stock pot, add broth, water, chicken, and seasonings. Bring to a boil.
Add egg noodles and continue boiling to cook noodles as directed on package. Soup is ready to serve when noodles are done. Season with salt and pepper to taste, or allow your guests to season their own.
Set this on the table with a loaf of dark bread and you have a meal worthy of being part of the celebration for Homemade Soup Day!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4630. for hearts that are true
4631. for soup, that warms the body
4632. for a mild winter
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
