For Wednesday, July 18th, 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.

Today is National Hot Dog Day which is a day to celebrate one of America’s favorite summer sandwiches. It’s only fitting that this dog gets its day.
In the summertime Hot Dogs are center stage on the grill and at picnics all across America. They are at the ballpark and also sold from carts on street corners in every city. it’s not hard to find them at all.
Hot dog, hot dog, hot dignity dog !
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Summertime and the living is easy
I do love hot dogs and all the ways you can fix them. I even like them sliced up in a baked bean casserole, which makes for a very simple and quick dinner.
Beans and Franks
2 tsp. margarine
3 tbsp. chopped onion
1 can baked beans
1 package frankfurters
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1/4 c. ketchup
dash Worcestershire sauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter is skillet. Sauté onions in butter until tender. Stir in baked beens and sliced frankfurters. Season with brown sugar, mustard, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.
Transfer to a 2 quart casserole dish and bake for 40 minutes.
Summertime is made for easy living and I try to keep it as simple as possible here at my house.
Yesterday was a beautiful day here in northern Ohio and today looks like another one. I’m so thankful for the lower humidity that makes everything feel better. Although we’ve had some scorcher days this month, we do get days like this that make me love summer !
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday!
