For Wednesday, July 11th, 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!
Today is Cheer Up the Lonely Day which was established to spread awareness of other people and the damaging effects loneliness can cause. It’s also an opportunity to make a lonely person happy. Any time you can make someone happy, you’ve done a good thing, and should be proud of yourself.
Loneliness can affect the young and the old. Lonely people have few friends and loved ones. They may have lost loved ones over the years. They may be people you see on an infrequent basis.
It’s an easy thing to do… just spend some time with them. It’s ok to make a phone call or send a card, but what a lonely person really needs is face to face time with other people.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Make someone happy then you will be happy too.
Although I live by myself, I’m truly never lonely. My friends and family see to that. Being alone and being lonely are two different things. When you’ve live alone as long as I have it becomes a way of life. It’s great when I have company or go out with friends, but more than not I’m comfortable with me, myself and I.
When the babes all left home it was difficult for me to adjust the quiet here at my house and that is when I started doing this post every day. It’s my way of keeping in touch. And it makes me feel like family and friends are as close as my fingertips too.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
