ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR FRIDAY, MARCH 6TH, 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 World Day of Prayer which in an international ecumenical Christian Women’s initiative. It is celebrated annually in ever 178 countries on the first Friday of March. The movement aims to bring together women of various races, cultures and traditions in a yearly common Day of Prayer as well as closer fellowship, understanding and action throughout the year.
Women are encouraged to take up the burdens of other people, to sympathize with the problems of others and pray with and for them. They are further encouraged to become aware of their talents and use them in the service of society. The World Day of Prames aims to demonstrate that prayer and actin are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence in the world.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
It is better in prayer to have a heart without words that words without a heart.
I;m a big believer in prayer and consider it an honor and a privilege to pray with and for others. If you would like me to pray for a special intention of yours, just let me know and if you’d like for me to put your prayer request in this newsletter, let me know that too. I have friends that are great prayer warriors and would be glad to put your name on their prayer lists. Just let me know. I won’t publish your prayer request unless you give me permission to do wo.
Today I have a prayer request of my own to share. One of my friends is in the hospital and will be going to rehab for therapy soon, so Please join me in praying for her that she will soon recover and be able to be back in her own home soon. She has back issues that are causing her a lot of pain, all related to arthritis.and it is hoped the rehab therapy will help her.
Depending on the weather, I’m hoping to get out for a fresh Lake Erie Perch dinner today. I’m not sure if it will be for lunch or dinner, but it is one of my favorite things to eat. There is a restaurant close by that has them every Friday not just during Lent, so all I have to do is call and place the order then go and pick it up.
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC Friday!
