ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15TH, 2019
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 Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day which is a day of remembrance of pregnancy loss and infant deaths which includes but is not limited to miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, still birth, or the death of a new born.
The day is observed with remembrance ceremonies and candle lighting vigils, concluding with an International Wave of Light, a world wide candle lighting at 7:00 p.m.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side .
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
We must remember God’s plan for us is not our plan. God’s plan for us is far larger and better than any plan we can imagine.
Please join me in lighting a candle at 7 o’clock this evening in remembrance of a grandson who died from SIDS several years ago now. He’d have been 13 on his birthday this year. It was a shock to all of us when he passed away without any warning.at all. We never think of anyone dying that young, he was just 2 and seeming very healthy. It’s something parents really never get over.
I’ll never forget the day that I received that early morning call to go to DS#3’s side. We’d made happy plans for thanksgiving just a couple days away and those plans quickly changed. What was to be a happy family gathering turned out to be a gathering of a different kind. We can make all the plans we want, but God often has other plans for us.
I’m sending out prayers and thoughts today to DS#3 and his family today as they remember their loved one. I will remember and give thanks for the short time we had this little grandson in our lives. He was a joy and we’ll never forget.
On the Bright Side this day comes along to give us a chance to honor all the infants, heavenly angels in our lives.
I hope you all have a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Sharing tales of those we’ve lost is how we keep from really losing them.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
7510.for our little Pumpkin, my heavenly angel grandson.
7511. for parents that have lost children, coming together to remember.
7512. for God’s plans, He knows what is best, even though we don’t.
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
