ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SEPTEMBER 1ST, 2006
Peace begins with a gentle smile.
Learn to profit from your losses. It’s no big deal to capitalize on gains . . . it is noteworthy to advance after set-backs.
What you are is God's gift to you; what you make of yourself is your gift to God.
HAPPY F R I DAY !
Happy vacation day to me !
A new month is here – September !
I’ll be putting the picture of my September purse in my morning journal page if you want to take a look. My new washer is being delivered sometime this today and I’m sorta excited about it. I know that’s not usually something to get excited about, but I do need to do my laundry.
Have a great day all ! Another wonderful one on the Way !
Please pray for God's protection of our troops and HIS wisdom for their commanders.
Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
GOD BLESS YOU !
TODAY IS…EMMA NUTT DAY !
Yes, Emma M. Nutt was areal person! She's famous for being the first female telephone operator. Initially, the phone company hired young boys - with disasterous results. They fought with each other, were unruly and rude to customers. On September 1st, 1878, Emma was hired (along with her sister). Her career saying "operator" lasted 33 years. I wonder how many wrong numbers that included! Ring-a-ding-ding!

September's birthstone: sapphire. Flower: aster or morning glory.

A POEM FOR MOMS AND DADS
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my sanity to keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
I'm pretty sure I'll lose my mind.
I pray I find a little quiet
Far from the daily family riot
May I lie back -- not have to think about
what they're stuffing down the sink,
or who they're with, or where they're at
and what they're doing to the cat.
I pray for time all to myself
(did something just fall off a shelf?)
To cuddle in my nice, soft bed
(Oh no, another goldfish -- dead!)
Some silent moments for goodness sake
(Did I just hear a window break?)
And that I need not cook or clean--
(well sure, I've got the right to dream)
Yes now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my wits about me keep,
But as I look around I know--
I must have lost them long ago!
paradigm \PAIR-uh-dyme\ noun

In operation for over 50 years, the Bergs' restaurant has long been a paradigm of efficient small-business management.
Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance
If you trust God, you will believe his promise in today's scripture. Out of your shame or your sorrow he will bring you double blessings. Life can be unfair. We may lose a loved one prematurely because of an accident. A spouse may be unfaithful. Others may be promoted around us on the job.
It is important that we trust God's promise that he will bring us a "double portion." God wants to do new things in your life. Don't look back! Let it go!
TODAY’S ADVICE FROM THE OLD FARMER’S ALMANAC
Do not hang all on one nail.

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your Heart
I Love You All !!!
Be Blessed !!!
I believe we should live ‘ON THE BRIGHT SIDE’
