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.

52 DAYS UNTIL WINTER
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Internet Day which celebrates the origin of the very first internet transmission ever sent. The Internet is everywhere these days, being accessed on phones and tablets, tied into our cameras and our TV’s. WiFi is accessible from everywhere these days, from city buses to your neighborhood McDonald’s, and the world grows smaller every day as a result.
Internet Day is a celebration of this culmination of computing and communication technology, and they way it has brought all our lives together.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The advent of electronic mail is fostering a revival of the familiar letter.
I am thankful for the internet as it keeps me in touch with family and friends. It’s a part of my daily life and would feel lost without it for sure.
Thanks to the internet I can even stream TV programs and as I no longer have cable available here, I do depend on it for anything I watch. I even depend on it for the news and the weather.
It’s to be another wet and cold start to the day here, but I’ll be headed out to church as usual later this morning. I’m thinking I’ll be needing a coat which is something that hasn’t been out of the closet in a long time. I’ve got a couple of rain jackets and either one should do the trick. When layered over a sweater, they will keep me warm enough for now.
I hope you all have a RELAXING Sunday!
It’s National Oatmeal Day! Oatmeal is an extremely healthy, versatile food that can be eaten any time of day. It is both filling and low in calories, which makes it the perfect breakfast or snack. Oatmeal is also delicious baked in cookies.
I tend to eat more oatmeal for breakfast when the weather turns cold and always have a box in the pantry. Not only is it good for breakfast and in cookies but it’s also used in several recipes I have.
One of my favorites is Meatloaf and I’ve probably shared this before, but for those who haven’t tried it, here it is again. I found the recipe on a box of oatmeal many years ago and that’s the way I’ve made it ever since.

COUNTING MY GIFTS
I believe that social media's greatest gift is in providing every person the forum to be themselves, speak their heart & soul.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.

5390. for oatmeal, good and good for you

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
