For Friday, May 25th, 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.

Today is also Don’t Fry Friday which always celebrated the Friday before Memorial Day. At this time, sunshine is the most intense and people are seeking sunshine and the great outdoors after a long winter.
The purpose of today is to educate people and make them aware of the dangers of over exposure to UVA and UVB rays. The UV rays come from the sun and are the primary cause of skin cancer.
A little sunshine is good for you. It provides important vitamin D and sunshine brightens our mood. Remember the all things in moderation rule.
To have a safe and happy summer follow the motto for skin cancer prevention: Slip, Slop, Slap and Wrap. This means slip on a shirt, slop on suntan lotions, slap on a hat and wrap on the sunglasses. UV rays can damage your eyes too. It’s also recommended that people stay out of sun during the midday of summer when these harmful UV rays are the most intense.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
You are my Sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You’ll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away...
This grandson’s birthday was celebrated with a party this past Saturday and I was able to be there to join in the fun. We had thought it would be indoors due to predicted rain but for the most part we were able to be outdoors. That is what the pictures are of today.
The gifts had to be opened in the garage because we had a shower blow our way, but then the sun came back out in time for the birthday cake. His party theme was Mind Craft and the cake designed by his dad.
I probably won’t see our X factor today but will be seeing him tomorrow because we have another party to go to and his folks are giving me a ride.
I’m making deviled eggs for tomorrow’s party along with doing the much needed yard work today. Everything has not dried out due to the heavy rains we’ve had, but I have to mow the grass. It’s been growing like crazy. We have had 3 days now with sunshine and hopefully tomorrow will be sunny too. We’ll see….
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
We grow better in sunshine and in love.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6008. for celebrations with family
6009. for sunshine to dry things up
6010. for a ride to tomorrows party
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
