For Saturday, May 19th, 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.

33 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 6:05 am
Sunset: 8:44 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Armed Forces Day which is simply a day to salute all the men and women in all the branches of the military who protect you and our country. They can be called up at a moment’s notice to perform a risky and perilous mission for freedom and country. They train diligently both physically and mentally, so they will be prepared to prevail in any mission they face.
We owe a big THANK YOU to our military service men and women for their dedication.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
Having had a son and DIL that were in the military for over 20 years, a husband that served in the Air Force, and a dad that was in the army during WWII, I do have a great appreciation for all that they did. My Dad was a Purple Heart recipient for the sacrifices he made.
Today is the party for our little X Factor but his actual birthday is next week so I hope to have pictures to share with you then.
We’re to have a surprising 80 degree day but rain is expected. I say surprising because it’s sandwiched in between two mid 60 degree days. We usually are not this warm until July.
This grandson’s party is usually held outdoors. However today we’ll be inside for sure. But no matter, what is important that we’ll celebrate his birthday and there will no doubt be a lot of fun going on. The pictures today are from last year at is birthday celebration.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
