For Friday, February 9th, 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.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A winning smile makes winners of us all.
While I’m not a great sports enthusiast, it is always fun to watch and of course we always hope our team wins. I will probably only catch the highlights as reported on the news.
The only TV I have here is what I stream through Netflix or Amazon Prime. I could not have Dish TV installed here due to the surrounding trees and cable is not available at all in my community. It has been an adjustment for me but it has saved me money.
I never was one to watch much TV anyway and prefer a book over a movie always. I do get the news on line so that is never a problem and I have my radio, which works without any special connection and is always free.
They are saying we’ll be getting our daily dose of snow today but it is to be warmer. We’ll be out of the deep freeze but still very wintry.
The picture above is of my Sunshine boys sporting their Ohio State sweatshirts, our home team, and I’d say they always have a winning smile! The rest of the pictures are of what few winter sport pictures I have. All involve my grandchildren.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
It’s National Bagels and Lox Day. It became a popular sandwich filling in the mid 1800’s when the transcontinental railroad began shipping barrels of salted Salmon to the East Coast.
While I often eat bagels with cream cheese, I’ve never had one with lox, which is thinly sliced cured salmon. This is a sandwich which can be served for brunch, lunch or dinner.
Classic Lox Bagel
1 plain Bagel
1/4 Lox, salt cured salmon
3 oz cream cheese
1 small red onion chopped
1 dozen capers
fresh ground pepper
Cut Bagel in half and speed with cream cheese. Draper lox over bagel and top with onions and capers. Sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper and serve.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Winning and losing isn’t everything; sometimes, the journey is just as important as the outcome.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5698. for sports, great entertainment
5699. for bagels, which make for a great sandwich
5700. for Friday’s, always a good day
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
