For Wednesday, April 4th, 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.

79 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 7:06 am
Sunset: 7:57 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Walk Around Things Day which is an important day to avoid problems and risks, by simply walking around the potential problem. Just as we wouldn’t walk under a ladder, it is also wise to walk around objects, especially those that pose risk or danger.
Walking around things can also be used figuratively. It is wise to walk around, or avoid topics, issues and problems that are sticky, or may provoke an argument or that are not easily solved.
If ever there was a day to ‘Walk Around Things’, today is that day.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Of all exercise, walking is best.
Walking is always a good thing, it provides needed exercise and can improve or maintain our overall health. Even a little is good but more is better. It’s good for your heart and is a great stress reliever. Getting up and moving helps everyone feel better, and there is nothing better to get your energy back up than get out and getting a little fresh air and exercise.
These days walking around the grocery store seems to be where I get my walking in. I will be happy when the weather warms up and I can just enjoy walking around the yard. Even pushing the lawnmower around sounds pretty good at this point.
Our temps are in the 30’s today and we may even see some snow. High winds are leaving many around northeast Ohio with no power. Here the lights are on and I hope it stays that way.
The pictures today were taken after church Easter Sunday. I was so happy to have some of my family there, we definitely filled up one whole pew.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5857. for walking, it’s good for you
5858. for a good day to get things done inside, when the nice weather comes, I’ll want to be outside .
5859. for family, friends and faith
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
After dinner sit awhile, after supper walk a mile.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
You're blessed when you're content with just who you are—no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought
Matthew 5:5 (MSG)
