ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8TH, 2020
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.
Today is Boy Scout Day which according to the Scouts motto, everyone should try to do a good turn on Bou Scout Day The dates goes bak to the founding of Scouts in Amerial by William Dicson Boyce in 1910. In Gret Britain Lord Baden-Powell is the so called father of the Boy Scouts There are Scout organizations all over the world.
On Boy Scout Day Scouts celebrate themselves. They go to church together on Scout Sunday and have breakfast. Scout Sunday is the Sunday next to Boy Scout Day. Scouts learn a lot about nature, sports, animals and have the claim to always be helpful and friendly. They do sports together and have a wonderful confraternity.

If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
The real way to gain happiness is to give it to others.
Robert Baden- Powell
I am and have been a big supporter of the Boy Scouts for many years. It all started when my oldest son wanted to join scouts, and I was told I’d have to be a den leader if I wanted him to join. I served as a den leader and even a Scout Master and enjoyed every minute of it over the years.
The only two that are Scouts in my family right now are DS#6 and his son. The pictures today are of their Pinewood Derby this year. It’s a family thing and even his daughter got involved. She made her own derby car too. It’s definitely an organization that the whole family can enjoy.
I’m going to attempt to get out for some shopping today. I haven’t been out an about since Thursday and I’m ready for some fresh air and some exercise too. I think walking around Target is going to do it for me. I need to get a couple more storage totes and maybe I’ll find some new ideas for Spring.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
