For Monday, August 6th, 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 Wiggle Your Toes Day which encourages us to give our toes some exercise. Those ten extremities at the ends of our feet are crying out for a little freedom. Cramped up inside a pair of shoes all day long, our toes just don’t get the chance to move about freely as they would like to.
The best place to wiggle your toes on a hot August day is in the pool or sit on a dock and stick them in the water.
You can also go barefoot or wear sandals or flip flops and show off your toes today, or even treat yourself to a pedicure. Just let your tootsies have some breathing room.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
You will find that success in life comes far easier when you maintain a cool head and a warm heart, rather than a hot head and cold feet.
Our feet are the foundation that keeps us grounded and help us move through our lives so it’s important to take good care of them and not neglect them.
As I’ve gotten older, my feet have become more and more particular about what kind of shoes I wear. I used to love to go barefoot, but not any more. I do have sandals and flip flops to wear in the summer, but if I’m doing much walking at all I need to wear a sturdier pair of shoes.
I do love to take off my shoes and prop my feet up on my footstool when I sit down to read or watch TV and there might even be a toe wiggling going on. Ha !
It’s a new week and a busy one ahead for me. Lots to do and nothing is going to get done here, if I don’t get started. There is no one here but me to do it all.
It’s going to be another hot day in Ohio, so I’ll be taking advantage of the air conditioning and working inside today. I don’t have any new pictures to show you right now nor do I have pictures of feet, so I dug into the photo album and came up with a few to share from last summer.
I hope you all have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils,light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you.

Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
