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.

8 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:45 am
Sunset: 7:32 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Plant a Flower Day! Spring is fast approaching, so this is a great way to get ready. We all love Spring for its sunshine, greenery and new blossoms. Depending on where you live, planting flowers is a perfect way to welcome warmer weather and sunshine, or simply to decorate your yard or house with some beautiful flowers.
Gardening has become a popular hobby amongst people of all ages. If you can, get outside and plant some flowers today If not you can still plant your flowers inside a pot. Flower gardening is a sure way to brighten your day and bring you some happiness!
One very popular flowers for the month of March is daffodils. Planting can be a fun activity to do with the whole family.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
I bought some herb and flower seeds not long ago and plan on planting them in the flower pots and flower boxes out on my sunporch. I’m hoping they’ll grow and that by warmer weather I can put them outdoors. The pictures today are of the flower boxes last year when the weather was nice.
Sad to say it’s not really advisable to plant anything out doors until the middle of May here. We usually have chances of frost until then. We’ll just have to wait and see what Spring brings our way this year.
The weekend certainly flew by and here we are the beginning of a new week. I plan to get started on a Spring painting project today and hope that by the end of the week it will be done. I found a cute idea at the craft store the other day that inspired me. I went in there with a purpose and came out with much more than was on the list.
All the decorating for Spring and St. Patricks day are done here and my house is in reasonably good order, so it’s looking like a great week to get it all done. Planting and painting !
Don’t forget to smile !
I hope you all have GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday!
