For Saturday, July 7th, 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.

77 Days until Fall

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Chocolate Day which is the perfect opportunity to eat your favorite chocolates in ample portions.
Chocolate comes from cocoa trees, their fruit produces cocoa seeds, which in turn produces cocoa powder and chocolate.
Chocolate is American’s favorite flavor. It’s the flavor of choice in candies, Ice Cream, cakes, breakfast cereal, toppings and a whole host of desserts. Unequaled in popularity, it deserves a day in it’s honor.
Happy Chocolate Day!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Anything is good if it’s made of chocolate.
I do love chocolate and usually have my daily fix in the form of piece of chocolate candy or two. I especially love chocolate that has nuts in it and my favorite nut is pecans.
The pictures today is what I happen to have on hand at the moment, but there is a wide variety to choose from and these are not my only favorites. They say chocolate is good for us and I take that to heart and always have a bite or two every day.
Thankfully we’ve had two cooler days in a row now. Yesterday and today we’re in the 70’s. It was wonderful to turn off the air conditioning and open up the windows and let some fresh air in. Tomorrow we’ll see low 80’s and that still good considering the 90 degree days we had. 80’s in July is normal for us .
I got the yard work done yesterday afternoon and today I’m going to think up something good to make for weekend dinners. I’ll cook today and heat up tomorrow.
Since it’s chocolate day I tried to find a good chocolate recipe to share and this is what I found.
Chocolate Filled Crescents
1 can refrigerator crescent dinner rolls
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
Powdered sugar if desired
Heat oven to 350. Separate dough into 8 triangles
Place a tbsp. chocolate chips on wide end of each triangle. Roll up, starting at shortest side of triangle. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
A quick and easy decadent dessert !
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6137. for chocolate good and good for you
6138. for crescent rolls, easy peasy
6139. for cooler days, very pleasant
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!

ADVICE FOR TODAY
If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you’re eating it too slowly.
