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 National Chocolate Chip Day, which is a day to celebrate the tiny morsels of chocolate that make any dessert better. It isn’t just about cookies, it’s about all the things you can include chocolate chips in. Pancakes, muffins, pudding, ice cream granola bars, pies, are just a few of the wonderful creations you can add to them.
To celebrate today, pick up a bag of chocolate chips and bake something yummy!
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Anything is good if it’s made of chocolate.
I happen to have chocolate chips on hand here at my house, so I’ll definitely be baking up a chocolate chip dessert today. They say that both oats and chocolate are good for us so I’m thinking that this should count as a healthy treat.

Today is going to be a busy one for me. I’ve shopping to do and errands to run. Thankfully we’ll have a party sunny day and it’s a bit warmer too. If the grass dries out enough I’d also like to get the yard work done, but if time doesn’t permit, maybe I can get it done tomorrow before the rain returns again. We’ll see...
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wedsday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
I’m grateful for every day I’m still alive. Everything is still working. I contribute it to eating a lot of processed foods. I think its’ the preservatives that keep me going. That, and I eat as much chocolate as I can get my hands on.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
7066. for chocolate chips, very versatile
