ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16TH, 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 Do a Grouch a Favor Day which is the day to just do a grouch a favor, even if you do not like it. A grouch is one who is grumpy or irritable. It’s a time to look around for someone in a grouchy mood. Then do him a favor that will delight his whole day. Maybe the fact that someone doing them a favor will change their behavior in the future.
Sometimes it’s the simple things like a smile, a hug or kind word that make a difference. This day might have been the brain child of Big Bird in an attempt to pull Oscar the Grouch out of his continue grumbling spirit, or may have been the secret initiative of a grump who wants people to do nice things for them, despite their prickly exterior.
If you see someone without a smile then give them one of yours.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Peace begins with a smile
For me, Life is too short to be anything but happy. It’s a waste of time to be grumpy.Why not be happy and enjoy life, instead of complaining and being grumpy. We cannot do much about what happens to us, but we can always choose our attitude. I always try to look at the bright side of life, it is there if we take the time to look for it. There is something wonderful to be found in each day..
DD and I made our annual trip to the outlet mall yesterday. It wasn’t planned ahead of time but worked out well for both of us. DSIL had to work so we had her son along and he turned out to be a very good shopper. the pictures today are of three of us. The best buy of the day was a 50 dollar top on sale for $5. I couldn’t pass it up.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Use your smile to change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
