celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate.

 and celebrate your triumph by praising our God. 
May the Lord answer all your requests.

Find the good and praise it.

Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise Him again-my Savior and my God!

Thought for the Day 9/21/2018

Friday Tale... Approaching Each Day
I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have. 
·       Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.
·       Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
·       Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.
·       Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
·       Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
·       Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new job relationships.
·       Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to go to!
·       Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with knowledge and adventure.
·       Today I can dejectedly murmur because I have housework to do or I can feel grateful for shelter for my mind, body and soul.
·       Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped, and here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to me. And I shall decide what kind of day I shall have!
How will you live this day?            
~ Author Unknown

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today,
that I have set before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse.
Therefore, choose LIFE, that you and your offspring may live,
loving the Lord your God, .... for He is your life and length of days.
~ Deuteronomy 30:19-20
