For Thursday, July 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.

58 Days until Fall
Sunrise: 6:17 am
Sunset: 8:51 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is All or Nothing Day which is not a holiday to be taken lightly. It’s a time to take risks and live on the edge. To do something you’ve always wanted to do.
All or Nothing Day urges people to break through their barriers, ignore their fears that hold them back and make a big commitment to a better life.
Try something new, seek an adventure, and give this day all you’ve got!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
To be alive, to be able to see, to walk…it’s all a miracle. I have adapted the technique of living life from miracle to miracle.
No matter whatever I’m doing, I always try to give it my all. If it’s worth doing then it’s worth doing my best. It’s truly all or nothing for me.
Yesterday I was the recipient of a brand new kitchen faucet which is shown in the picture above. Sadly I found that the shelves below my sink were dripping wet when I went to get a garbage bag out. I called our trusty maintenance department and they quickly had someone out to make repairs. It wasn’t a pipe that was leaking but the faucet itself. So it was replaced, but the job of cleaning up was left to me.
While I was waiting for the work to be done, I surfed the internet for something to do with the large zucchini DD had given me from her garden. I found several recipes I liked and after all the clean up was done, I mixed one of them up and used one of the zucchini I had on hand. Tomorrow I may use another one. There are truly a lot of ways to use zucchini.
This is the recipe I used yesterday:
Bisquick Zucchini Pie
A picture of the finished product is in the picture below and the very last picture for today is of the finished slate I painted earlier this month.
I hope you all have a GREAT day. Happy Thursday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Best to take the moment present, as a present for the moment.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6194. for sunflowers, always cheerful, giving their best
6195. for a new faucet
6196. for lots of zucchini, thanks to DD
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
