For Sunday, April 15th, 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.

Happy Birthday to you♥
Today is also Rubber Eraser Day which celebrates the invention of erasers. We all make mistakes. This day is designated to recognize and appreciate that little plug that often sits on the top of our pencil.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Today’s opportunities erase yesterday’s failures.
This son’s birthday is another very long distance one and a card was sent in the mail filled with my best of wishes and lots of love as usual. DS#2 and his family often do things with DS#4 and family so some of today's pictures include them too.
The picture shown above with a flower on it, is of an eraser that one of my grandson’s gave to me. I had to erase some pencil lines on some of the art work I was doing one day and I couldn’t find the one I usually use which is called a kneaded eraser. I found this cute little eraser instead, and it worked just fine.
It would be great if all our mistakes could be erased easily. Sadly that is not the case. On the bright side of things we should never dwell on them and move on. Mistakes are only things to learn from.
When I went to the grocery store this week I discovered something new so I thought I would share it in case you haven’t seen them. The
are called Lil Snappers and are a combination of grapefruit and tangerine. They have the thin skin of a tangerine but are larger and have a little snap to them like a grapefruit. They are sweet but tangy and are delicious. If you like grapefruit you will love these.
I’m sipping my good cup of morning coffee right now but will be off to church as usual a little later. I’m thankful once again for my raincoat. Looks like a wet day here.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
The written word can be erased — not so with the spoken word.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
