For Saturday, April 28th, 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.

54 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 6:29 am
Sunset: 8:22 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is National Sense of Smell Day. The importance of the sense of smell is often overlooked and some don’t truly appreciate how much of a role it plays in every day of our lives.
Smell serves to protect us from danger. It can trigger memories in a way that little else can. It’s also a fact that no two people smell odors in quite the same way.
The best way to celebrate today is to give your snifter a good work out ! Try savoring new scents though out the day and really take time to appreciate all the various odors that cross your path.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Smell is the sense of memory and desire.
There are many wonderful smells to enjoy. One of my favorites is the smell of my good cup of coffee brewing every morning. The smell of Spring is in the air. I can tell if a cake I’m baking is done, just by the smell coming from the oven.
Flowers all have a smell of their own. Roses are different from hyacinths, yet both are very fragrant. Wood smoke in the air always reminds me of camping. Babies have a very unique smell and one that I treasure.
Thankfully I’m not allergic to any smells, but some are. I appreciate them all, even the bad ones because they warn us of something that’s wrong. The other day I accidentally turned on the gas in the stove , but due to my sense of smell I quickly turned it off.
This week I made a pot of chili and it’s spiciness quickly filled the house with a smell that made me very hungry. I could go on and on about smells, there are so many and for me, most of them are good ones.
It’s to be a rainy start to the day and even that has a smell of it’s own. It’s a good to turn on the oven and bake some banana bread.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
