For Tuesday, June 26th, 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.

88 Days until Fall
Sunrise: 5:56 am
Sunset: 9:06 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Forgiveness Day which is a time to forgive and be forgiven. The world will be a better place for this day.
Troubles and disputes should be ended on Forgiveness Day and people should get along with each other again. Forgiving is a relieving process and not only for today but something everyone should do from time to time.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.
William Arthur Ward
I believe we are forgiven as we forgive others and with that in mind I think I’ve forgiven all. I’ve even had the hard task of forgiving myself at times. None of us are perfect, we are only human, and we need to let go of those mistakes and move on. Life is too short to hold on to grudges.
I don’t ever want to waste my time by holding on to hurts or anger. I forgive and forget and love the life I live. I don’t have to approve of everything people do in order to love them. Life is so much better when we just love one another. We need to focus on the things in life that really matter.
Yesterday was mostly cloudy day here and today will be another one. We also have chance of showers moving our way too. On the bright side we’ll be somewhat warmer. We were only in the low 70’s yesterday. Today we’ll be in the low 80’s.
I made up some Salisbury steak to have for dinner yesterday and that is what I’ll be having again today. I do love leftovers. Cook once and eat it twice or in my case three times. The rest will go in the freezer.
I made mashed potatoes, a banana salad and heated up some corn to go with it and it was just the comfort food I needed.
Here’s the recipe in case you might want to make your own.
2 lbs ground beef
1 cup oats
1/2 c. green pepper, diced
1/2 c. onion, diced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 can cream of mushroom soup, diluted
Mix all ingredients except for the mushroom soup. Form patties and brown in skillet. Once browned lower heat, add diluted mushroom soup and let simmer slowly, stirring occasionally. You can serve with mashed potatoes or rice.
The pictures today are of some flowers growing wild in a field back of DS#4’s house. They know I especially love sunflowers.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
