For Sunday, August 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.

Today is also International Youth Day, which was designated by the United Nations as a day to raise awareness about the state of young people around the globe. It’s our opportunity to think about the different problems that the youth of today face and to work together to find solutions. Together we can make a difference.
It also aims to promote ways to engage our youth in becoming more actively involved in making positive contributions to their communities.
Happy International Youth Day!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Grandchildren are loving reminders of what we’re really here for.
This little granddaughter is the baby in her family and also the youngest in our family. She’s the baby but growing up quickly. I won’t be seeing her today but have sent out a card wishing her much love and happiness on her special day ! The only pictures I have of her are with her family, but you can tell which one she is if you look for the smallest one shown. She is a darling for sure.
Our young people are so important and deserve all the care and attention we can give them. I know that all the grandchildren in my family are well loved and cared for, but many do not have the attention they need. It was my privilege to volunteer with our youth group at church for many years and also with the scouting program when my children were young. Several of my children and even some of the older grandchildren, are now doing the same, helping other children too. It is things like that help our young people grow up in a good environment. We can all make a difference, no matter how small.
We had a fog advisory yesterday , but it cleared early on and it was mostly sunny. They say if we count the number of foggy days in the month of August we’ll know how many snow storms to expect in the coming winter. This is the first for us. We’ll see how many more we get.
I’m off to church today as usual and then home for my day of rest.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Children represent God’s most generous gift to us.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
6245. for our little Darling, it’s her birthday today
6246. for all young people everywhere
6247. for a mostly sunny day to enjoy, no rain in the forecast
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Almighty and eternal God,
Protect our military
as they discharge their duties
with the shield of your strength,
may the power of your love
enable them to return home in safety
that with all who love them
they may ever praise you for your loving care.
AND bless our Police Officers, Firefighters
and Paramedics and EMT’s
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
ADVICE FOR TODAY
It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.
A little smile, a word of cheer,
A bit of love from someone dear…
