For Thursday, July 12th, 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.

Happy Anniversary !
Today is also Simplicity Day which commemorates the life, times and work of American philosopher and proponent of simple living. Henry David Thoreau. Born on July 12, 1817, Thoreau was an environmentalist and an author. He was one of the first people to encourage hiking and other outdoor activities for fun.
This unofficial holiday encourages people to embrace simple living and a simple outlook towards life. It also promotes participants to do one thing to make the world a better place.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things in life which are the real ones after all.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
DD and her hubby happen to live close by to me so I do get to see them often, but probably not today so I did put a card in the mail wishing them a Happy Anniversary.
It’s wonderful that some of my children and grandchildren do live close by but I really miss seeing those that don’t. Thankfully they all stay in touch and I get pictures now and then.
Today is to be another beautiful sunny day here with temps in the low 80’s. I’m supposed to be going to lunch with a couple of my friends and a trip to the beach may be in the offing. I’ll make sure to take pictures if we do. I love the beach and although the shores of Lake Erie are only about 20 minutes away, I don’t get there very often at all.
My life is pretty simple and I’m thankful for that. I’ve learned to appreciate the little things that mean a lot.
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Simple pleasures are the last healthy refuge in a complex world.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
