For Thursday, May 3rd, 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 National Day of Prayer which calls on all people of different faiths in the United States to pray for the nation and its leaders.
In 1775 the Continental Congress allocated a time for prayer in forming a new nation. Over the years, there have been calls for a day of prayer, including President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. On April 17th, 1952 President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988 designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.
Traditionally the President of the United States issues an official National Day of Prayer proclamation each year as well.
We need to pray not only for our nation but for our leaders too.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Holding the heart of another in the comforting hands of prayer is a priceless act of love.
Janet L Weaver
This granddaughter’s birthday is another long distance one but as always a card was sent out in the mail with love and happy birthday wishes. I do hope to get to see her this weekend so I’ll be abe to do some celebrating with her then.
They say that even when we cannot be with those we love, we can wrap them in our arms with prayer.
It seems that as I’m getting older there is not a whole lot I can do when it comes to helping others, but I can still pray and I do that a lot. There are times it seems I spend my whole day in prayer.
I do pray for our nation and it’s leaders every day, not just today. They have a really tough job to do and prayers can’t hurt.
Today I’m going to finish up the baking that I need to do for this weekend. I started yesterday but it is taking the better part of 2 days to get it done. I really do rest mare than I work.
At least with the rain we are expecting today, the house should be a little cooler when I turn the oven on. By evening yesterday I had to turn the air conditioner on for just short while to cool it down. We’ll see...
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday!
