For Tuesday, March 6th, 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.

15 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 6:55 am
Sunset: 6:25 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Oreo Cookie Day. Oreos are the delicious chocolate cooke with cream filling that we all know and love. The Oreo sandwich is made using powdered sugar, vanilla extract, water, granulated sugar and shortening.
The first Oreo cookie was sold in March of 1912 to a grocer in Hoboken, NJ. The Oreo cookie has since become the best selling cookie in the U.S.
So pour yourself a glass of milk and indulge in some Oreo cookies today !
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Cookies are made of butter and love.
Oreos are a popular cookie here at my house and I use them to make all sorts of other desserts too. From dirt pudding to delicious oreo cookie bark, they make for some very good eating.
I have shared many recipes to date but have found yet another using these delicious cookies.
Kool Strawberry Oreo Sundae
2 c. frozen strawberries sliced
2 Tbsp. Kool Aid Strawberry flavor drink mix
4 c. vanilla ice cream
8 Oreo Cookies, crushed
Mix strawberries and drink mix in medium bowl. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes; stir.
Scoop 1/2 cup ice cream into each of 8 dessert dishes. Top each with 1/4 c. strawberry mixture and cookies.
This is the 2nd day of my weeklong birthday celebration and I just happen to have some strawberries in the fridge to enjoy! Yum!
They say it’s going to be a bit warmer today but we’re to have rain and snow showers mixed. Take good care it may get slippery out there.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Think what a better world it would be if we all — the whole world — had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap.
