Fathers Day, Sunday, June 18th, 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.

3 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Life is a Special Occasion!
Happy Birthday To DD and DS#3 today!
Happy Birthday ♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ Happy Birthday ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ Happy Birthday to you♥ ♥ ♥
May the dear Lord bless and keep you both today and always!
And today is Father’s Day which celebrates the contribution that fathers and father figures make to the lives of their children. It's a special day to tell your dad how much he means to you and show your appreciation. Take a moment to honor all the wonderful dads in your life: fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, and sons!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.
It’s a triple celebration here at my house today! DD and DS#3’s birthdays and Fathers Day and for the most part long distance celebrations all. None the less I want to wish all a very Happy Day! I did not get any cards sent out at all so this will have to suffice. You are all very special to me and I wish you the best day ever!
All of my sons are fathers and I’m very proud to say they are all good ones too. My own father has been gone now for quite awhile, but will always be kept close in my heart. The pictures today are DD and DS#3’s birthday when every one was home for our family reunion a couple of years ago now.
I’ve been looking at the long range weather forecast and it will cool down into the mid 70’s and lower 80’s. It’s the usual Sunday here for me. Off to church and then home to rest. Since it’s cooled down some it may be a good day to spend time out on the sun porch.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
There is a food holiday to celebrate every day of the year!
It’s Turkey Lover’s Day which encourages you to break the mold and have turkey whenever you want it. There’s nothing like the smell of a hot steaming turkey roasting in the oven, but that’s only one of the ways that it’s prepared. It has been baked, roasted, smoked, and recently it’s become popular to deep fry the turkey, creating a unique form of preparation that’s wonderfully delicious.
As lots of people celebrate Fathers’ Day with outdoor barbecues I thought I’d share a recipe for turkey burgers today.
Grilled Turkey Burgers
1 1/4 lbs. lean ground turkey
1/2 cup finely chopped orange or red bell pepper
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain dry bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. finely chopped sweet onion
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in medium bowl; shape into 6 burgers. Grill or broil until done. Serve, if desired, on hamburger buns with your favorite toppings. You can also try serving burgers topped with Creamy Salsa. Simply combine 1/2 cup Mayonnaise with 1/2 cup chunky salsa.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!
Lydia M. Child
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
4993. for DD and DS#3 it’s their birthday today
4994. for all fathers, where would we be without them
4995. for turkey, good any time of year
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
