For Saturday, September 16th, 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.

5 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
Happy Birthday to DDIL#4 today!
Happy Birthday ♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ Happy Birthday ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ Happy Birthday to you♥ ♥ ♥
May the dear Lord bless you today and always!
Today is also International Eat An Apple, which honors apples. Apples are delightful and a healthy addition to anyone’s diet. It’s a sweet treat, all natural, non fat and lots of good nutrients.
There are many good ways to enjoying them including straight off the tree, sliced and dipped in peanut butter or dusted with cinnamon and sugar in an apple pie.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
You are the apple of my eye!
DDIL#4’s birthday is another one of my long distance celebrations and the card was put out in the mail as usual sending my love and best wishes for a very Happy Birthday. She has the best smile and I’m thankful for all the pictures she shares that helps to keep me in touch even though they live very far away.
This weekend our small town has it’s annual Apple Festival. It’s has all kinds of good food to offer including apples. They also have some games for the kids and a few craft booths to look at too. Thankfully we are having some beautiful weather to get out and enjoy it all.
I’m supposed to go after church tomorrow and have lunch there with DS#6, DD and her son, and DS#5 and family. It’s held in the town square every 3rd weekend in September.
Yesterday my youngest sister and I went out shopping. We wanted to go to the Pepperidge Farm outlet store, but found it has closed. We also visited an antique store that is right next door to it. Then we went to Steinmart looking for a gift for one of my aunts, on my dad’s side of the family, as my cousin is having a birthday party for her on Sunday. Sunday is going to be a very busy, but fun day for sure.
Today I’m thinking that the air conditioning might have to be turned back on as it’s to be close to 80 degrees. I am spoiled and even though I like open windows and fresh air, it just gets too stuffy without it. We’ll see...
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.
Robert H. Schuller
