For Sunday, June 24th, 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.

90 Days until Fall
Sunrise: 5:55 am
Sunset: 9:06 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is International Fairy Day which is a day for fairy believers to celebrate the stories, magic and misery of the Fair Folk. For centuries fairies have been an important part of Celtic culture. In all the ancient ledges, these mythological creatures are described as intelligent, mischievous, and magical.
In his 1904 play Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie wrote that when the first baby laughed, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and that was the beginning of fairies. International Fairy Day is the perfect day to celebrate the joy and magic of the fairy world. Read a classic fairy take, build a fairy house or take a stroll through the woods. You never know when you might stumble across something magical.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Live each day happily ever after…
The pictures today were taken last year when I visited a couple of garden centers. Fairies are very popular decorations in gardens and they had a lot of choices.
To me all of the outdoors is magical and there is always something magical to see in every season of the year. The rain we’ve had the past two days has pretty much kept me indoors, but the view from the porch is always enchanting.
I do love fairy tales, because they always live happily ever after in the end. For me, taking life one day at a time, is my way of living happily ever after. For one day at a time, anything is possible.
Today is my day of rest and I’ll be off to church as usual. It’s the best way I know of to end one week and start another. They say a Sunday well spent brings a week of content.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
I thank You God for this amazing
day: for the leaping green spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything which is natural
which is infinite
which is yes.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6098. for happy endings
6099. for an enclosed porch
6100. for the great outdoors, always beautiful
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS

AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT’s
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
