For Wednesday, April 12th, 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.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.
#1 is my very first grandchild and I’m sending out best of wishes for a very
happy day for her. Sadly I don’t have any pictures to share of her today. When my computer underwent an overhaul, I lost the few that I had. She shares this date as it also would have been my mom’s birthday too.
It’s looking like we’ll be having some great spring weather the next few days with no rain and partly cloudy skies. The temps will be in the 60’s too.
Unfortunately they say there will be some rain moving in our way for the weekend though. Hopefully every one can enjoy their Easter Egg hunts as they are to be scattered showers not an all day rain.
I’ve been without a car here for a couple of days as the brake line was leaking and it had to go in for repair. Hopefully I’ll get it back today. Otherwise all is quiet on the home front.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
It's National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day! Although it only requires three ingredients, bread, cheese, and butter, grilled cheese is one of the most popular comfort foods in the world.
In my opinion the only way to make a grilled cheese sandwich better is to add a little bacon. Here’s a recipe if you want to make you own. Treat yourself to this all American classic grilled sandwich along with a bowl of tomato soup or your favorite slaw, and you can’t go wrong.
Grilled Bacon an Cheese
8 slices multi grain or firm white sandwich bread
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
8 slices medium Cheddar Cheese or Colby Cheese
6 to 8 slices crisply cooked bacon, halved
4 slices large tomato
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard or spicy brown mustard, optional
Heat a large griddle over medium low heat. Spread butter evenly over one side of each bread slice. Place 4 slices bread, buttered side down, on griddle or in skillets.
Layer 4 slices cheese, bacon, tomato slices and remaining 4 slices cheese over bread; top with remaining bread, buttered side up. Cook 3 minutes per side or until golden brown and cheese is melted.
Cut sandwiches diagonally into halves; serve with mustard for dipping, if desired.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes of which all men have some.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4813. for #1, it’s her birthday today
4814. for my car, old but still running
4815. for partly cloudy days, no rain
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Almighty and eternal God,
Protect our military

that with all who love them
they may ever praise you for your loving care.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT’s
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
