For Tuesday, June 19th, 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.

2 Days Until Summer
Sunrise: 5:55 am
Sunset: 9:05 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is World Sauntering Day which is a day to saunter here and there, wherever you go.
You can spend your life walking, jogging or being dragged through life. But life is far more enjoyable if your saunter through it.
Sauntering is not a walk, jog, trot or run. Sauntering is a form of strolling. It is a very casual form of movement from point A to point B. The dictionary defines it as moving along slowly, happily and aimlessly.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Slow down and enjoy life, it’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
I am a saunterer and move slowly and happily through my days for the most part. There is truly nothing fast about me. After many years of rushing through life, I vowed to slow down when I retired. Life is too short and I don’t want to waste any of my days by missing out on the things I’d not see if I were going to fast.
It doesn’t really matter what age we are, slowing down can bring better health and happiness. Life is short , but it is also long. Take time to savor every moment along the way.
Yesterday was definitely a lazy day here at my house. It was so hot and humid that even with the air conditioning on, I really didn’t feel like doing much of anything. The only thing that was working hard here was the air conditioning. It was so hot I couldn’t even enjoy the porch which is my favorite place to be these days.
Today is supposed to be much cooler with temps back down to normal. Lower 80 degree temps are so much nicer than the mid 90’s. I woke up to a loud bang here this morning as a thunderstorm passed through. Even though I will not be moving fast, at least I will be be moving.
One thing that is not moving at all is my internet. I lost service yesterday afternoon and the repairman hasn’t come yet but about 15 minutes ago it came back on, we’ll see....
I’m sharing some pictures from DS#6 today. He and his family were out for a hike one day last summer and I think they have mastered the art of sauntering.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Be grateful, slow down, enjoy life...
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6083. for life in the slow lane
6084. for lazy summer days
6085. for the beauty of each moment
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

You’re only here for short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
Note to anyone no longer receiving comments in their email.
Thanks to a friend that blogs I recent found out that I could once again receive comments in my email by checking the box in my comment section that says to email follow up comments. I took a picture of what I see on my blog when leaving a comment on it.
I’ve started leaving a comment on my blog each day just so I can enjoy receiving comments in my email again.
Hope this helps anyone else having a problem.
I also can no longer comment on a few of my favorite blogs at all as it seems I’m not a member of Google Plus. So if you are wondering why I no longer comment that is why.
