For Saturday, June 30th, 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.

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Meteor Day which is a time to do some star gazing. Meteors are space dust and ice that enter the earth’s atmosphere. and are often called shooting stars. The average meteoroid is about the size of a pebble. Around 15,000 tons of meteoroids enter the Earth’s atmosphere every day but few actually reach the surface. Where they do reach the earth , they are called meteorites.
If you see a shooting star, make sure to make a wish. For when you wish upon a star…your dreams come true.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight
Old Nursery Rhyme
Being in the city isn’t always the best place to do star gazing. Being out in the country provides a much better view, but still no matter where you live, it’s a fun thing to do. I remember one time years ago when I was visiting my parents farm the stars were so bright you almost felt as if they were close enough to touch them. It’s a sight I’ll never forget.
For lack of star pictures I found some of the moon to share with you today. They were the only night sky pictures I could find in my photo album.
It’s supposed to be another hot day here in northern Ohio so try to keep cool everyone. That is what I’m going to be doing today. Thankfully my house is in the shade here and I’m sure that will help.
It’s the end of another month. The year is now more than half way over. I’m thankful for summer days to relax and enjoy. Don’t forget to look up this evening and enjoy the beauty of the night sky.
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.
Henry Van Dyke
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6116. for shooting stars to wish upon
6117. for a shady spot to keep cool
6118. for evening skies, just beautiful
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
