For Tuesday, August 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.

30 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Be an Angel Day which encourages us to do acts of kindness, and to help others.
The objective of this day is to be like an angel, and do something good or kind for someone. It encourages us to be God's servant in doing good things for others. It is intended to do something nice or kind for someone who is in need of help. The type of angelic help you can offer is not defined or limited. It can be physical, emotional, or spiritual.
Be an Angel Day is for both the giver and the receiver. If you are the receiver, make certain to express openly your appreciation. And, recognize the angel in your life as being sent from God.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.
I’ve had many angels in my life. Friends and family that have been a great help to me in times of need. There have also been a few strangers that have shown up just when needed too.
I am very thankful for them all and would like to say how much they all are appreciated.
It’s not hard to be an Angel to someone. Every action we take that helps another can result in many different things occurring, not the least of which are lasting friendships, eternal gratitude and or sometimes just a feeling of contentment of doing something good.
They say we’ll have a rainy day here in my part of the world and one of my little grandsons will be spending the day with me while his mom is at work. He’ll be brightening what would otherwise be a gloomy day for sure.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
It’s Eat a Peach Day.
Peaches are quite possibly the world’s perfect fruit, they are rich and delicious and even their flesh has an amazing texture. The aroma they fill the air with is enough to make one’s stomach rumble, and there’s little that can compare to a nice cold peach tea in the summer heat. Eat A Peach Day reminds you that it’s never a bad time to spend a little quality time with this perfect fruit.
I found a recipe for a salad made with peaches which sounds perfect for these hot August days.
Mozzarella Peach Salad
3 ripe peaches, peeled, if desired
1 cup fresh basil leaf, torn
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1 inch chunks
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Cut each peach into 6 to 8 wedges, then cut each wedge in half crosswise. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, basil, and mozzarella.
Drizzle with the oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss. Serve cold or at room temperature.
COUNTING MY GIFTS

Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
