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 I Forgot Day which by definition is not a day to remember. Some days are days to remember and cherish all of our lives. Others, like today, are ones to be forgotten.
Some people view today as an opportunity to express their regrets for forgetting something and to make amends to all the people you forgot to send a card to, or forgot to meet, or forgot to pick up…
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I’ve reached an age where my train of thought often leaves the station without me.
I really try to not forget anything or any one but I’m human and I do forget. I keep a calendar to remind me of important dates but if I don’t look at the calendar, I will forget.
It’s easy to forget even what day it is when you live by yourself and no longer go out to work each day. Good thing that calendar is handy to keep me on track. Making lists of things I want
to remember is easy to do too and I keep a list on my phone, but again I have to remember to look at it. But writing things down does seem to help us remember.
It’s Monday and the beginning of a new week once again and I’ve got my list ready for what I’d like to get done this week. There are no birthdays, anniversaries or special days to remember except for the 4th of July this week and I’m sure the neighborhood fireworks will remind me of that. I’ve set the table for the 4th and that is what the pictures are of today. I have had this table cloth for ages and don’t remember at all where I got it. It will probably last forever as I only get it out for the 4th of July.
We continue to be unusually hot and the long range forecast says there will be rain coming our way too. Whatever the weather, I will try to remember to bring my own sunshine along.
I hope you all have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Gratitude makes us feel bursting with delight, just to remember the gifts we have received. Thus we are doubly blessed when we received something — for the gift itself and later, in recall, for the miracle of having been given it.
M. J. Ryan
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6122. for calendars and lists that keep me on track
6123. for paper and pens to write reminders with
6124. for my phone, which has my notes and calendar readily available
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
Better by far that you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
