For Wednesday, May 2nd, 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.

50 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 6:24 am
Sunset: 8:27 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Baby Day and as the name suggests it celebrates babies. And it gives us the opportunity to celebrate the miracle of birth and life.
Babies are special. Babies are not only cute, but they are innocent in ways that allow you to see
goodness on our planet. They provide us with hope and happiness, thus making us strive to become a better person.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Babies are always more trouble than you thought — and more wonderful.
Babies are such an amazing gift, and becoming a parent is one of the most rewarding experiences of one’s life. All my family is grown now, but they will always be my babies. Even the grandchildren are getting older. The youngest one will be 3 years old this year and the oldest one is 25.
Today’s pictures are of some of my grandchildren as babies, I loved being able to hold and cuddle with each and every one of them.
Today is to be the last of our extra warm days. We’re to be close to 80 degrees and oddly enough our area has been issued a Fire Watch. Even though my back yard still has puddles in it from the last rain storm we had, it’s extremely warm and windy so we have to be careful. Fires could develop and spread rapidly and outdoor burning is not recommended.
After today we’re to have rain Thursday and Friday then the temps are to drop back down to normal once again. By the weekend we’ll be in the 60’s.
I’m starting the spring cleaning today. Yes, the closets are finally sorted, or at least as much of them that I wanted to do for now. I’ve cleaned off the dining room table and put a fresh table cloth on. The corner cabinet and the hutch will be next. Along with the cleaning will also come some decorating for May. I’ve chosen a red white and blue theme and it will for the most part continue on through the summer months.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Children represent God’s most generous gift to us.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
5939. for my precious family
5940. for all life, new and amazing
5941. for hope and happiness
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Almighty and eternal God,
Protect our military

that with all who love them
they may ever praise you for your loving care.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters

ADVICE FOR TODAY
A baby will make love
stronger, day’s shorter,
nights longer, bankroll
smaller, home happier,
clothes shabbier, the past
forgotten, and the future worth
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
