For Friday, February 23rd, 2018
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.

25 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:12 am
Sunset: 6:12 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Banana Bread Day. Banana bread is a delicious baked good which is classified as a quick bread . The first cookbooks that mentioned banana bread were published during the Great Depression. Resourceful housewives that did not want to throw away over ripe bananas may have invented the original recipe.
In fact the riper the bananas the better the taste of banana bread.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Give us this day our daily bread, is probably the most perfectly constructed and useful sentence ever set down in the English language.
I always have a supply of overripe bananas here at my house and make banana bread often. I like to add chocolate chips to mine too. I also noticed that bananas were on the list of good things to eat when you have the flu.
They are part of the BRAT diet, bananas, rice applesauce, toast, that is often recommended for nausea. I haven’t really been nauseated but I’ve had little appetite and these things are among the few that taste good to me these days.
Today is like a repeat of yesterday with the exception of the temperature. We’re to be in the 50’s today instead of the 30’s like we were. On the bright side the heat bill this month was not as terrible as the one I had last month. It’ hasn’t been quite as cold.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plan, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and fail bread are the sweetest things in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5737. for bananas, good and good for you
5738. for a lower heat bill
5739. a cup of Lemon Lift tea, with honey
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
