For Wednesday, March 21st, 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 World Forestry Day which celebrates the value of forests and forestry to our commit. The concept of World Forestry Day originated in 1971 and was declared an annual even by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.
Forests are critical for all life on Earth as the provide shelter, shade, refuge and clean air and water. The worlds forests are at constant rick from deforestation as demand for forest products increases.
It’s a great day to plant a tree.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I often feel like I’m living in a forest with the huge trees that are all around me. Truth is though that on either side of where I live there are highways with traffic constantly whizzing by. My community is like a little oasis from it all. My house is not fancy at all but it’s just right for me and I love the trees.
The pictures today are from last summer. Right now we haven’t got any leaves on the trees. The only buds are on the Maple tree out front. The trees that are on either side of the house are oak trees and believe me when I say they can produce a lot of acorns.
Today is my day to get out and about. They say we will have snow showers on and off and it’s cold out too. Our schools are closed due to slippery conditions on the roads. I do however need to get to the store and do my weekly shopping and get things too for the Easter celebration my family is having this coming week end.
Spring has sprung in many parts of the world but not here yet.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
I thank You God for most the amazing day
for leaping green spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky
for everything which is natural which is infinite
which is yes.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5815. for buds on tree out front that give me hope

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
