For Friday, May 11th, 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.

41 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 6:13 am
Sunset: 8:36 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Eat What You Want Day which is a day to ignore your diet and indulge in foods you love most. Today you can splurge. Tomorrow it’s back to the diet. While junk food is acceptable, don’t forget to include your favorite meals as well.
To celebrate Eat What You Want Day, eat all your favorite healthy and not so healthy foods, in moderation of course. Enjoy every bite!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Food for thought is no substitute for the real thing.
As I have no allergies or medical conditions, I pretty much eat what I want everyday. But I do know a lot of people that avoid certain foods because they are on a diet.
One of my favorite things to eat and that I don’t have very often is Lasagna. It’s something I consider too much to make for just one. I’ll make it when I know there is a crowd to feed, but it does freeze well so there really isn’t any reason I shouldn’t make it and put the leftovers in the freezer.
So today I’m sharing my recipe. I’ve decided to make it in two smaller pans and divide the ingredients so I’ll have one to eat and one to freeze.
Although my freezer is small, it’s great for storing my leftovers. It’s hard cooking for one person and I do make good use of it.
Today is to be cooler and cloudy. I’ve a few errands to do and some shopping.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5966. for good food, I like it all
5967. for a freezer to store leftovers
5968. for my old cookbook, it’s served me faithfully for over 50 years
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
