For Friday, June 30th, 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.

84 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Sky Day! This holiday pays tribute to the beauty of the sky. Celebrate today by taking some time to relax and appreciating the sky's pure blue color, looking for shapes in the clouds, or star gazing.
Today is also known as Meteor Watch Day. A meteor or shooting star is the visible streak of light from a heated and glowing meteoroid falling through the Earth’s atmosphere.
Legend has it that if you wished upon a shooting star the wish would come true. Remember when you wish upon a star, dreams come true.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means waste of time.
I love to sit and watch the sky. It doesn’t matter whether its daytime or nighttime. The heavens are wondrous to behold. Summer is the perfect time to do some star gazing, or to watch clouds floating by. It’s a peace filled way to spend your time.
With the 4th being on a Tuesday, today begins nice long weekend for many. The skies are going to be filled with a lot of fireworks to enjoy too. Our weather is warmer and more humid too with a chance of rain over the next few days. Hopefully it won’t put a damper on anyone’s 4th of July weekend activities.
Thanks to my family I’ve got a lot of wonderful sky pictures to share today.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
