For Friday, June 1st, 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.

20 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 5:57 am
Sunset: 8:55 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
The month of June is Aquarium Month, Candy Month, Dairy Month, Fight the Filthy Fly Month, National Adopt a Cat Month, National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month, Rose Month, and Turkey Lovers Month.
Today is National Donut Day. Whether it’s powered, jelly filled or frosted, this classic treat is always delicious
Donut Day began in 1938 to honor the Salvation Army Donut Lassies, women who served the treats to soldiers during World War I.
To celebrate National Donut Day pick up a freshly made donut or buy a box to share with friends and family.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
It is the month of June,
The month of leaves and roses,
When pleasant sights salute the eyes
And pleasant scents the noses.
Nathanial Parker Willis
It’s no secret that I always have a box of donuts on hand here at my house. I usually eat one or two every day. I have a sweet tooth and they hit the spot.
It’s hard to believe that half the year is gone already and we have only 6 months remaining of 2018. The time seems to go by in a flash and it’s time to make my Summer bucket list. I am happy to say that I completed every item on my Spring bucket list except for the Spring cleaning. That is still a work in progress.
My Summer bucket list:
Have a picnic
Take a road trip
Go to the beach
Watch the fireflies
Go to a Farmers Market
Watch the sunset
Eat fresh tomatoes and corn on the cob
It’s not a very long list but some of the things I want to do. I may add more later on, who knows. And I know I’ll be doing some of these things more than once for sure.
Today I’m going to spend some time on the sun porch painting, I’ve had many projects just waiting to be finished and it’s time I got some done.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Spring being a tough act to follow,
God created June.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6029. for donuts, one of my favorite sweet treats
6030. for summer and all it’s glorious days to enjoy
6031. for lots to da, I’m never bored
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
as they discharge their duties
with the shield of your strength,
may the power of your love
enable them to return home in safety
that with all who love them
they may ever praise you for your loving care.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT’s
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
ADVICE FOR TODAY
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the
grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to
the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds
float across the sky, is no means
a waste of time.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
