For Thursday, March 8th, 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.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I am a woman above everything else.
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
I am so thankful thankful I’m a woman. It’s been an honor and privilege to be a wife, a mom and a grand’ma’. I’ve lived in a time of great advances for women and have seen many changes just in my lifetime alone.
It is important to remember the women before our time and give thanks for them too. Ann Frank, Florence Nightingale and Mother Teresa are some of the most influential women in history.
My maternal grandmother has always been my hero. She raised 10 children, was a teacher and was a farmer’s wife. She raised chickens for pin money, she taught Sunday School, she was a quilter and she crocheted many beautiful doilies. She was a wonderful sewer too and taught me how to sew and make my first dress. Her hands were never still except for Sunday’s and that was her day of rest and to honor the Lord.
On this 4th day of my birthday week I’ll be celebrating women past and present and am thankful for all they’ve done and will do. Todays pictures are just a few of the wonderful women in my life.
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
There cannot be too many glorious women.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
