For Saturday, July 22nd, 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.

62 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Hammock Day which is appropriately celebrated right in the middle of the Dog days of summer, July 3 through August 11th.
Summer is in full swing and it’s time to slow down and relax. There is no better place to do that than a hammock under a shady tree. It’s not a day for work. Cutting the lawn is forbidden on this day. Enjoy the weather and recharge your batteries.
Kick back, and slow down and most of all, relax!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
For fast acting relief try slowing down.
I’ve plenty of shade to enjoy here and am loving it on these hot days of summer. I don’t have a hammock but do have a comfy rocker on the porch. I really don’t do much when it gets really hot out, so rest and relaxation is always a part of a summer day.
We are starting the day with rain and then they say will cool down a bit. Looking ahead, the forecast for next week says it will be cooler with temps in the high 70’s and low 80’s. I’m ready for some relief.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
Today is Mango Day which is a day to celebrate this deliciously sweet and juicy fruit from the tropics.
Here’s an easy recipe that you can try.
Mango and Banana Smoothie
3 mangos, peeled, pitted and chopped
3/4 cup milk
1 cup ice
1 teaspoon honey
Combine all ingredients in blender. For a thicker smoothie, add more ice.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5092. for lots of shade
5093. for a comfy rocker
5094. for cool refreshing tropical beverages
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
