ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
FOR MONDAY, MAY 4TH, 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.

Life is a special occasion!!
Today is Star Wars Day — May the Fourth be with you ! Today, Star wars fans across the glaxy will celebrate one the most iconic and influential pop culture franchises of all time. Star Wars Day is celebrated each year on May the Forth as a tribute to one of the most famous Star War quotes. May the Force be with you.
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when the first Star War day celebration took place. The holiday was created by fans and its popularity grew with the rise of the internet and social media. The first organized public celebration took place in 2011, and the holday was officially recognized by Lucasfilm in 2013.
To celebrate today watch a Star Wars movie and check out the deals featured on the official Star Wars website.
If you can’t see the bright side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
DS#5 is a big Star Wars fan and has collected a lot of memorabilia over the years. And one of my grandsons even had a Star Wars themed birthday party a couple of years ago and that is what the pictures are of today. I’ve always liked the words, May the force be with you. Reminds me that we have a big force in our lives that is always with us. Our Lord and Savior, who is always with us each moment of our lives.
He doesn’t promised that no bad will come our way, but that He will be with us each step of the way. His promises are always true and He is always with us.
After a beautiful 70 degree weekend, our temps are cooling down this week. We’re to be back in the 50’s but it won’t be a total wash out, there will be a few days of rain but also a few days of sunshine to revive us. Good thing I didn’t pack away my coat just yet, we’re going to need them again. Hopefully soon it’ll warm up and we’ll stay that way. I’m getting out the capri’s this week in anticipation, but not to worry I have plenty of sweaters to wear over my t shirts and if that doesn’t work I have hooded sweat shirts!
Hard to believe that Mother’s Day is just around the corner, so I best be thinking up something good to share with all the mothers in my life. I’ve always felt it an honor and a privilege to be a mom and I love my big family.
The Force will be with you… always.
I hope you have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday! May the Fourth be with you !
