For Thursday, February 22nd, 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.

26 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:13 am
Sunset: 6:11 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is George Washington’s birthday. He was the first President of the United States and was born on February 22, 1732. He served two terms of office from 1789 until 1797.
After the presidency, Washington retired to his home in Mount Vernon, Virginia where he died on December 14 1799 of a throat infection.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I’ve leaned from experience that the great part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.
I know we just celebrated President’s Day celebrating all of our Presidents but as George Washington was the very first President, I thought he deserved special mention. In the realm of things our Country is a young country and one I’m proud to be a part of.
We have rain rain and more rain around here. There is water water everywhere. I got out for a few essentials yesterday but am staying in and keeping dry today. I don’t want to take any chances of having a relapse now that I am finally feeling better.
Very slowly I’m trying to catch up on what I didn’t do for the week that I was sick. One thing about living alone is that if you are sick, nothing is done. I’ve a pile of laundry that seems to have no end. And the house needs a good Spring cleaning for sure !
Rainy days are good for house work anyway!
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday!
Think Spring !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Worry is the intrest paid by those who borrow trouble.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5734. for a return to good health
5735. for plenty to do, I’m never bored
5736. for a dry, warm home.
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
