For Saturday, April 14th, 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.

68 Days Until Summer

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is International Moment of Laughter Day! Today is a day to laugh Loudly and laugh often. Watch a funny movie, read an amusing book, share your favorite jokes or indulge in some good old fashioned silliness to celebrate the occasion.
In addition to spreading joy, laughter has many heath benefits. Studies have shown there is indeed truth to the old saying, laughter is the best medicine. Laughter can act as an antidote to pain, stress and conflict. It also strengthens our immune systems, boosts circulation and relaxes muscles.
Whether you giggle, chuckle, chortle, cackle, or guffaw, share a moment of laughter with friends and family today !
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Laughter is the jam on the toast of life. It adds flavor, keeps it from being too dry and makes it easier to swallow.
It’s true ! Laughter is good for us. This week has been one of those that I could have used a lot of good laughs. I did get a few and I’m very thankful for those.
Life can be pretty stressful at times and this is when it’s good to remember those moments of laughter, moments of good times filled with fun that always leave you feeling better. The good times help you get through the bad times.
I remember days around the campfire with family and friends. We laughed so much we could hardly stop. It’s been a long time since I laughed like that but I will always remember when I did.
There were some good jokes and some bad ones told around the campfire, but most of the time we all laughed just because someone else laughed…laughter is very contagious! If you’ve ever had one of those belly laughs that make your sides ache, chances are you are not going to forget them anytime soon.
After a very warm and partly sunny day yesterday, Spring is playing a joke on us today, but I don’t think I’ll be doing much laughing. Our temps are supposed to drop about 20 degrees and we’ll have rain and wind. They say next week, we may even have a chance of snow.
Sometimes we just don’t have any reason to laugh, but I don’t want to cry about it, so maybe laughter will be the best medicine after all.
Today’s pictures are of just a few good times spent with family over the years. There were hopefully will be many more.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
