ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 29TH,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 Black Friday which is the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. It’s traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
The term dates back to at least 1966. Retailers often decorate for the Christmas and Holiday season weeks beforehand. Many open extremely early , typically at 5 am or earlier. Some of the larger retailers have been known to open at midnight on the start of Black Friday. Upon opening they offer door buster deals to draw people to their stores. It’s usually the period in which retailers go from being in the red to being in the back, ie turning a profit.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
Traditionally we try to stay away from the Black Friday shopping although with such good sales more and more are venturing out in order to catch some good deals.
We like to get together on this day and do something as a family because it’s the anniversary of DDH’s death several years ago now. We used to attend what they called Christmas in the Colonies, a huge craft show with people dressed in old timey costumes and had things for the kids to do, but unforuately they stopped having it.
Last year we went to a small town nearby and visited the candle factory there and that is what the pictures are of today. This year, some of the kids and their families are going to the History Museum but I opted out. I’m in right in the middle of putting away fall decorations and getting Christmast ones out and have a terrible mess here. So I’m staying at home trying to create some kind of order. We’ll meet up later and I’ll bo going to dinner with them. The day after Thanksgiving is a Black Friday in more than one way for us.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!!
