For Tuesday, February 27th, 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.

21 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:06 am
Sunset: 6:17 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is No Brainer Day - this is a day for me ! By definition a No Brainer is doing something that is simple, easy, obvious and totally logical. Therefore today is the day for all those ‘no brainer’ tasks and activities. If a project requires thinking, study, or analysis of any kind, then
it is not the chore to do today.
This day is a reminder that most things are simple and that many problems we encounter daily have obvious and easy solutions. Allow yourself to stop over analyzing things and relax and take it easy. Sit back and give your brain a vacation.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
As simple as it sounds, we all must try to be the best person we can; by making the best choice, by make the most of the talents we’ve been given.
Mary Lou Retton
There is no doubt about it, this is day for me. I think my brain went down the drain when I got
the flu and like me it’s going to be awhile before we’re all better. Thankfully there really isn’t much I need to be thinking of right now.
Life is more enjoyable when you keep it simple and make it fun. KISMIF! Life really doesn’t have to be complicated. You get to choose. Life is actually pretty simple and it’s the simple joys in life that bring true happiness.
We’re to have a another sunny day and it’ll be a little warmer too with temps reaching 50! I’m going to find a spot in the sun and soak it in. I took pictures of our brilliant blue sky yesterday. It was beautiful out and the buds on the Maple tree out front are getting bigger.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
WHAT’S NEW IN THE KITCHEN
It’s National Strawberry Day which is an opportunity to pay homage to one of the most popular fruits in the world. Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen every year so that are often called the taste of Spring. The bright red juicy berries are both delicious and good for you . Each bit is packed with vitamins, antioxidants and fiber.
A fool is nothing more than freshly whipped cream with mashed fruit folded in. Fruit and cream is an age old favorite. Whipping the cream into billowy clouds makes it feel extra special.
1 c. heavy cream, chilled
1 c. fresh or frozen strawberries
1 to 2 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
a few sliced strawberries for garnish
Place chilled cream in a large bowl . Beat until light and fluffy. Place stabbers in a medium bowl. Sprinkle with sugar and add vanilla. Mash the strawberries leaving a few larger pieces.

Spoon some cream mixture into 4 serving dishes top with some remain massed strawberries and antoht er spoon or two of cream mixture. Put a few sliced strawberries on top and serve.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Whatever we are waiting for — peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance — it will surely come to us, but only we we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
