For Sunday, July 8th, 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.

Life is a Special Occasion!
Happy Anniversary to DS#5 and his wife today!
May the dear Lord Bless you both today and always !
An anniversary is a time to celebrate the joys of today, the memories of yesterday, and the hopes of tomorrow.
Today is also Video Games Day which is a day to acknowledge the technological achievements of the video game industry and to appreciate the skills required to play them. Today’s games have advanced special effects and seemingly endless themes that appeal to all sorts of gamers.
Video games aren’t just for kids, in fact they have become very popular actives at parties for all ages. People can now play games on their computers, mobile phones, and hand held tablets.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Newlyweds become oldyweds, and oldyweds are the reasons that families work.
As usual a card was sent out in the mail to this son and DIL to wish them a very happy Anniversary. Their’s is the first of two July anniversaries in our family. We have no July birthdays to celebrate this month, but for two of my children, July was the month they choose to get married.
I may be one of the few people left that doesn’t play video games. Truth is I have so many other things that I like to do that I don’t have time for them. However, I know that many in my family enjoy them and have lots of fun. If I had a choice, I’d rather be playing games around the table with family a lot more. These days that is a rare thing indeed.
Today looks to be a beautiful day in our part of the world and as usual I’m off to church and then home again for a day of rest and relaxation. I wanted to make a chicken and rice casserole in the crockpot yesterday but it turned out that all I had in the freezer were breaded chicken fillets so that didn’t happen.
It’s an easy recipe to make and is quite tasty.
Crockpot Chicken and Rice
Makes 6 servings
3 chicken breasts, cubed
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup rice uncooked
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients together in crock pot. Cover and cook on low 4 to 5 hours. Stir well every hour or so. It’s done when your chicken and rice are done.
All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
True love stories never have endings.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6140. for DS#5 and his wife, it’s their anniversary
6141. for my crockpot, I rarely use the oven in the summer
6142. for a beautiful day to enjoy
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
