For Thursday, April 5th, 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.

78 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 7:05 am
Sunset: 7:58 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Go For Broke Day which is a day to put it all on the line, and take a chance. It might be money, a relationship or to initiate a risky project or even take a new job.
Many of us go about our daily life playing it safe, not taking big chances., but today is a day to let loose and go for broke.
If you can muster up the courage to take a big risk, then today is your day to decide whether or not the risk is worth taking.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise.
The way I look at it, all of life is a risky business. We only have to turn on the news to see how easily and unexpectedly life can be turned upside down. We really never know just what each day will bring our way.
Life is about trusting yourself and taking chances, losing and finding happiness, learning from experience, appreciating the memories and realizing that every step you take is worth your while. Life is a risk and without taking risks there is no life.
It’s hard to believe we are on the down side of this week already. Thursdays are usually my day to get things done around the house. Fridays mean getting ready for the weekend and for me, the weekend means time with family and friends.
I may take a few risks along the way, but they will be worth the effort. The pictures are of DS#4 and his boys from a little fishing expedition this past weekend.
You must lose a fly to catch a trout.
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
God grants us an uncommon life to the degree we surrender our common one.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.

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