For Wednesday, September 13th, 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.

8 DAYS UNTIL FALL
Life is a Special Occasion!
Happy Birthday to our little Northern Belle today !
Happy Birthday ♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ Happy Birthday ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ Happy Birthday to you♥ ♥ ♥
May the dear Lord bless you today and always!
Today is also Positive Thinking Day. Today is all about attitude…a positive attitude.. The power of positive thinking is absolutely astounding. Research confirms that a positive attitude works wonders at fighting disease and ailments, from the common cold to cancer. People with a positive attitude are far more likely to succeed at work and in accomplishing every goal they set in life.
Happy Positive Thinking Day. It’s going to be a spectacular day!
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day.
This little granddaughter’s birthday is another of my long distance celebrations, but the card went out in the mail as usual to wish her a very Happy Birthday! Most of the pictures I have of her are with her family and that is what my pictures are of today.
The good news today is that we have a birthday to celebrate and even though it won’t be in person, I’ll be celebrating. One cannot help but be happy when they look at this sweet little girl.
I’m always looking for the bright side of every day, so I guess I would qualify as a positive thinker. I know from experience that there is always something good to be found in every day if we take the time to look for it.
The great thing is that we all get to choose our own attitude. We can choose to be happy or sad, and I’ve made up my mind that I’d rather be happy. Life is too short!
This week, like last week, is a busy one for me with much to do. I’m endeavoring to make some headway but it’s a slow process. I took time out to bake a banana bread coffee cake yesterday as I had 3 very ripe bananas that needed to either be pitched or used. So even though I hadn’t planned to bake, I did just that. Today is to be warmer so I won’t be turning the oven on and I’m hoping I won’t have to turn the air conditioning on either. We’ll see...
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
It’s National Peanut Day
Peanuts are one of America’s favorite snack foods. Peanuts star in a variety of recipes and are a topping for countless foods and desserts. Peanuts are not actually nuts but are legumes, like peas, peans and lentils.
Research suggests that peanuts can reduce cardiovascular disease and lowers triglycerides in the body. They are high in protein and faber and are now believed to help curb hunger, and therefore help in diet control.
I love to snack on peanuts and the picture above shows my favorite fall treat. It’s a mixture of candy corn and dry roasted peanuts. Simply delicious as it’s a mixture of sweet and salty. Yum!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures.
