For Thursday, May 11th, 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.

41 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Eat What You Want Day. The only rule you must obey is, of course, eat what you want, however you want it, how much you want it! Forget your diet and eat whatever you want for one day.
In today's fast paced world, where time is premium, diets have taken control of people to wish to live a healthy life. All of us have some kind of dish or food that we love but have to stay away from because it is not very healthy. This unofficial holiday allows people to take one day from the year and guiltlessly indulge in their favorite foods.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Eating is not merely a material pleasure. Eating well gives a spectacular joy to life and contributes immensely to goodwill and happy companionship. It is of great importance to the morale.
I pretty much eat what I want every day. I enjoy food and even like my own cooking. The trick I think is everything in moderation. Too much of a good thing is too much. Thankfully I don’t have any dietary restrictions or allergies to food. It’s a blessing for sure.
After a few beautiful, but cool sunny days, it is raining here this morning. Things had pretty much dried up here and I was able to get the grass cut yesterday. With more rain coming I’m assured this is one job that isn’t going to go away for a long time. I’m not complaining as it’s a job I can still do on my own.
The pictures today are of the sunny blue skies we enjoyed the past few days.
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday!
