For Friday, March 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.

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Meatball Day! Meatballs are perfect topping to a classic spaghetti and tomato sauce dish. They are often make by combining ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, onion, milk an and an assortment of sauces and seasonings.
Meatballs can be an appetizer, a side dish or the star of the meal. Just the word meatball is enough to bring to mind great family meals for most people. Yum!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Real food is the stuff that fuels real life !
I could never hope to count all the meat balls I’ve made and eaten in my lifetime. They are always a favorite topping on spaghetti here and meatball sub sandwiches are great too.
I’m not sure if I have shared my recipe for them before but here it is for you today.
This is the fifth day of my birthday week and today I’m reminded just how great family meals are. Due to time and schedules many families cannot sit down to dinner together every day but they are a great way of keeping your family close. The conversations we had over dinner made a difference in our family and still do when I can manage to get some of my family together for Sunday dinner.
After a sunny start to the day yesterday we did get more snow, and this morning we are getting more. I got my hair cut and grocery shopping done yesterday, so today will be my day to get some cleaning done. I have some of my family coming in to celebrate my birthday tomorrow so I’ve a lot to get done here. Believe me when I say it’s a mess here. For the past several weeks no cleaning has been done at all. : (
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5779. for a day to get the housework done
5780. for meatballs, a favorite in my family
5781. for family dinners, a way to keep close
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
Take time enough for your meals and eat them in company whenever you can. There is no need for hurry in life—least of all when we are eating.
