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.

Happy Birthday to you♥
Today is also National Potato Chip Day. Americans consume 1.2 billion pounds of potato chips each year. It’s the nation’s favorite snack food.
Potato Chips are thin slices of potato either deep fried or baked until crunchy. They are not just a snack food, they’re the potato of choice for many at lunch time and dinner too.
While Idaho/Russet potatoes are preferred for making them, Sweet Potato Chips have become very popular too. The recipe below is for serving one or two, but you can adjust it for making more.
Sweet Potato Chips
1 Sweet potato, peeled and sliced thinly
Fill a pan with 1/4 inch vegetable oil and heat over high. Add a couple of sweet potato chips at a time and let cook till reached desired crispiness.
Place finished chips on a paper towel covered plate and season with salt.
Chip in and enjoy some chips today !
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.
I was able to extend my birthday wishes to this DIL in person as she was at my party last weekend. But today is actually her special day so I’ll say it once again. Hope you enjoy your special day ! Happy Birthday !
I’m a potato chip lover and always have a bag or two on hand. They are good alone or with dip and I often have them with a sandwich for lunch.
Our town used to have a potato chip factory and we’d go there and fill up a can of freshly made chips still warm and nice and crunchy. Sadly they went out of business a few years ago and I’ve not found any other chip quite as good as they were. They may be gone, but not forgotten. I have tried making my own, but prefer to buy them.
It’s to be another cloudy day here, with 35 degrees for a high. Winter doesn’t want to loosen it’s grip. I’m trying to think Spring by making my own sunshine. I have made progress on my project and will soon have something to show you. It’s good to have something to do on these cold days.
I hope you all have WONDERFUL Wednesday!
