For Wednesday, June 21st, 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.

92 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
It’s Finally Summer Day. The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year. The amount of daylight only goes down from here and for the next six months. Summer Solstice is the meteorological start of summer. It's time to enjoy vacations, great weather, pools, baseballs, and everything else that goes along with the favorite season of kids and most adults. Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the season, because for many of us it is all too short.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
People take pictures of the Summer, just in case someone thought they had missed it, and to proved that it really existed.
This is the day I’ve been waiting for. The good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise, it’s the day to sign the final paperwork on the sale of the house. I think it’s appropriate too that is also the first day of Summer. Time to celebrate for sure !
It seems like summer has been here for quite awhile already with the high temps we’ve had. And it’s also a little sad thinking that from now on we’ll be loosing hours of day light one minute at at time. But on the bright side, that will happen slowly so while summer is here let’s enjoy it.
There are no big plans yet, but I’m thinking that when all is said and done, there will be a party happening for all my family and friends that helped so much to get me to this point. I couldn’t have done it without you all!
Still and all they say we shouldn’t presume the outcome till the fat lady sings. Hopefully this time tomorrow I’ll be singing.
The pictures today are of my favorite place to be, the beach.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
There is a food holiday to celebrate every day of the year!
It’s National Peaches and Cream Day!
Peaches with served with whipped cream is a classic dessert but in honor of this holiday I found this recipe to share:
Peaches and Cream Cobbler
1 cup sugar
1 cup sugar
2 large Eggs, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 cups peaches, peeled, sliced
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Margarine, cut into chunks
1 large Egg, slightly beaten
3 tablespoons milk
Vanilla ice cream, if desired
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all filling ingredients except peaches in bowl. Stir in peaches. Pour into uncreased 13 by 9 inch baking pan.
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl; cut in margarine with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg and milk just until moistened. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls over peaches; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly around edges. Spoon cobbler into individual serving dishes. Serve with ice cream, if desired.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5002. for summertime, the living is easy
5003. for the help from all my family and friends

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
