For Fathers Day, Sunday, June 17th, 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.

4 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 5:54 am
Sunset: 9:04 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Father’s Day which is a day to enjoy time with Dad and appreciate all he does for you.
In 1910 the state of Washington declared the nation’s first Father’s Day celebration. But it wasn’t until the Great Depression that the holiday became universally accepted. Struggling businesses began marketing the occasion and the country adopted the tradition In 1972 Father’s day became an official national holiday.
Take a moment today to honor all the wonderful Dad’s in your life;
Fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and sons.
Happy Father’s Day!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.
We have a lot of very special Dads in our family and it’s their day to celebrate ! So I’d like to wish my son’s, my nephews, my BIL and friends a very Happy Father’s Day. While my own Father has been gone now for many years, I’ll be celebrating too. No matter how old we get, we never forget our dads. Where would any of us be without them.
Just for fun I did a search to see what Dad’s wanted most for Father’s Day and this is what I came up with. Most Dad’s want dinner out with the family. Second best would be a gadget or electronic device. And sometimes just a phone call will do.
The pictures today are of my sons and their families. They are from our family reunion a few years ago. They range from DDS#1 to DS#6 and my only SIL too!
It looks like a quiet day here as usual and I’ll be off to church this morning and then home again for a day of rest.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
