ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8TH,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 National Cappuccino Day! This frothy coffee drink was created in the 1600’s. It got it’s name from an Italian order of monks known as the Capuchins, a group of friars that wore dark brown hoods, similar to the color of the drink.
Prepared with espresso, sugar, milk and a cap of foam, cappuccino is a customary way to jump start your day in Italy. In Western Europe, it’s just the opposite, cappuccino is most popular as an after dinner drink.
To celebrate, treat yourself to a kick of caffeine today !
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Every one should believe in something.
I believe I will have a another coffee.
I do like Cappuccino and make mine the easy way by using a powdered mix that I get at the grocery store and add boiling water to it. But I did find a recipe so you can make you’re own if you’d like.
Homemade Cuppunicno Mix
1/2 c. instant coffeee
1 c. sugar
1 1/4 powdered milk or powdered non dairy creamer
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Pour into a jar or some kind of storage container. Add a few spoonfuls to a mug full of warm water. Stir until mixture is dissolved. This mix would also make a great gift to give. Just put it in a pretty jar and tie a bow on it.
Hot drinks are a must when the weather turns cold like it has here. I keep a few different ones including hot chocolate and apple cider, on hand but this is one of my favorites.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
