For Friday, May 18th, 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.

Life is a Special Occasion!
Happy Anniversary to DS#3 and his wife today!
May the dear Lord bless you both today and always!
Happy Anniversary !
Today is also Visit Your Relatives day which is a day to stop by and say hello to family members that you don’t get to see very often.
In today’s fast paced world, it is easy to lose touch with the people we care about. Sometimes we only get to see relatives around the holidays. If they live very far away we may not get to see them at all.
Families provide an unyielding support system that gets us through the hardest of times and they are always there to to celebrate and create memories during important life milestones. We need our family and they need us.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The family is where most of our joy comes from.
There is no doubt about it, family is very important to me. Tomorrow I’ll be seeing quite a few of them as there is a birthday party to celebrate, but today’s anniversary for DS#3 and his wife is a long distance one and as always a card was sent out to wish them a Happy Day! It may be that they’ll will be at the party tomorrow. We’ll see...
Today I’m going to be spending some time getting ready for tomorrow. I’ve a gift to wrap and a fruit salad to make for tomorrow’s celebration. Otherwise it’ll be a day to finish up some much needed housework here. I did get to mow the yard yesterday, but had to go around some standing puddles that remain. It’s still very wet out there and the rain is to return once again tonight.
Our April showers have definitely continued on through May but on the bright side I’ve learned that no matter the weather, we must make our own sunshine !
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5987. for DS#3 and his wife, it’s their anniversary
5988. for family gatherings, they do mean a lot

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