For Saturday, March 4th, 2017
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
The moments of our lives may be bright with possibility, dark with fear or sadness, or even plain everyday gray, but God's glory never fades. May God's glory shine into the exciting lights, upsetting darks, and boring grays of your every day.

17 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is March Forth and Do Something Day which is a holiday that encourages people to do something new that enriches their own lives or the lives of people in their community.
March forth on March 4th!
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
To succeed means that you may have to step out of line and march to the sound of your own drummer.
Seems we could all use a little encouragement to keep marching on these days. Just like yesterday and the day before that, I’ll be packing here at my house. There is now just about a week till the moving begins. Marching forth is not an option, but a necessity here at my house.
I have donated more of my household goods and still have more that needs to go. Once again DD and her hubby have very generously volunteered their time to haul it all away for me and there is more help coming on the weekend. I’ve heard from DS#3,#5 and #6 and they will be in to help too.
Life is definitely going to be much simpler for me than it has been without all the things I’ve accumulated through the years. After all how many kitchen utensils does one person need?
They say that tomorrow is to be warmer and in the 50’s and that will be nice after the colder and snowier days we’ve been having.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!

COUNTING MY GIFTS
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
