ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR FRIDAY, APRIL 17TH, 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.
64 DAYS UNTIL SUMMER
Sunrise: 6:44 am
Sunset: 8:11 pm
Life is a special occasion!!
Today is Blah, Blah, Blah Day which celebrates the impulse to get the things done which people have been nagging you to do. Blah, Blah Blah Day is a chance to lose weight, vacuum the car, and so on. It concerns all those uncomfortable topics you just cannot stand anymore to deal with. There are some things people never get tired of reminding you to do.
The only way to stop them annoying you to take Blah, Blah, Blah Day as a kickoff moment to get things done. Mute the Blah, Blah, Blah by eliminating the topic that it is about. It’s a day to do all those things that other people have been nagging you about.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
When people nag us, we instantly resist, but when the facts force us in that same direction we instantly adapt.
Other than me myself and I, no one really nags me about doing much at all any more. When there is no one around to complain that I haven’t done much, it’s up to me to get my self in the grove and get things done.
Truly I haven’t been doing much at all around here. No one comes, no one goes so I have little motivation to get things done. Most people I know have been busy, sewing face masks or getting their spring cleaning done. I’m procrastinating and I know I’ll regret it when the nice wether comes and I’ll be the one that still has to stay inside and get their cleaning done.
The only thing I’ve been doing that’s of much good at all is to get out walking when the weather’s been nice. Trouble with that is there has not been much nice weather. Yesterday we woke up to snow on the ground and today we’re supposed to get more. On the bright side the weather is to be warmer on the weekend. I’ve promised my self a nice long walk then. If you don’t use it, you lose it and I’m determined not to lose it and keep walking as long as I can.
I used to be a nagger. I’d nag DDH to do things and the kids to clean up their rooms, but little good that ever did me. Nagging isn’t the way to go. More than not they did things when they felt like it.
So today remember all those things your mother used to nag you about and get things done.The pictures today are of DD and family. They’ve enjoyed plenty of picturesque hikes even though it’s been cold, they just bundle up.
My own dear sweet mother used to nag me to sit up straight and suck my belly in. She was never happy with the way I looked. Even when I was thin, she thought me too fat. Not a good way to live at all. For some reason she thought it was important to be slim. But that was one thing I never was.
To this day I’m pleased with who I am and what I have. That is a much better way to live in my books.
Today I’ll be keeping in and staying warm and cozy I still have a few more books I’d like to get read.
I hope you have a FANTASTIC Friday!
