For Sunday, May 6th, 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.

46 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 6:19 am
Sunset: 8:31 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Lemonade Day. This sweet drink is one of the most popular beverages to enjoy in the summertime. There are many different variations of lemonade including raspberry lemonade, sparkling lemonade, frozen lemonade, ginger lemonade, and pink lemonade.
To celebrate Lemonade Day, wind down with a tall glass of refreshing, fresh squeezed lemonade.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
If life throws you a lemon - make lemonade.
This popular saying is basically advising us to make the best of the negative situations in life. If you end up with something sour like a lemon, try your best to find the sweetness in life.
I do make fresh lemonade often and not just in the summertime. It is refreshing and good for you too. If I want pink lemonade, I simply add some cranberry juice to the mix.
Today is the second of my weekend celebrations. I’ll be traveling with DS#6 and family to the first communion service for our little Lad. After church we’ll be having lunch together and of course some cake too !
I feel like I’ve been on the road this weekend more than not, but it’s all good when it comes to being with family. It would be nice if we all lived closer together, but like the saying goes, we take the bitter with the sweet.
I just try to do the best I can with what I have and enjoy every moment.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
