For Sunday, February 18th, 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.

30 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:19 am
Sunset: 6:06 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today Is National Battery Day which is an opportunity to celebrate a vital invention. Batteries are used everywhere and come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and power compacity, to fit a wide range of needs.
Today is a good time to appreciate the batteries in our every day life. It would also be a good day to check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
No matter how long the winter, Spring is sure to follow.
My own personal power source is running on low right now. This is one battery that needs recharging. I’m hoping that the longer hours of daylight and warmer weather coming our way will help. The house needs a good disinfecting too and right now I do not have the energy for that but I’m spraying the Lysol disinfectant all around.
Fresh air and sunshine are high on my priority list. If we get a sunny day, I can take to the sun porch with a blanket and soak up some rays. It’s really an enclosed patio lined with lots of windows and does warm up when the sun comes out. It will stay that way until the leaves come out on the trees which will be quite a while yet. Then it will be nice and shady all summer.
Meanwhile, there is a fresh new layer of snow on the ground this morning so I’m staying in and trying to feel better each day. It’ll be awhile before I resume any normal activities. If you haven’t had this flu that is going around, you are blessed. It’s nothing anyone would wish on their worst enemy for sure.
On the bright side, the geese have returned to our little lake here. I saw them flying over the tree tops yesterday and heard them send a greeting as they few over!
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
