ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
NOVEMBER 1ST, 2006
Do small things with great love
Display an unselfish heart.
Politeness and consideration for others is like investing pennies and getting dollars back.
It was a very quiet Trick or Treat night at my house last night. My next door neighbor sister and her neighbor and I sat on the porch and enjoyed what few we had…only about 35 tricksters. I had 103 pieces of candy.
DN#3 and his fiancé also stopped by with the pumpkin they had carved . So the 5 of us sat on the porch and we ate a few pieces of that good candy too!
With a new month, I also have a new purse, so make sure you check out my journal page to see what it looks like. Only one more month of purses and then it’ll be time to stop…I’ve got quite a selection now. Next year it’ll have to be something else, not sure what yet.
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.
TODAY IS…PECAN DAY
Now, why do people usually only eat pecans during the holidays? The are cholesterol and sodium free - and are also full of vitamines and minerals. Eating a handful every day is good for you, but don't forget to try out special pecan recipes, too!

Not Enough Water
A man goes to the doctor and reports that he hasn't been feeling well. The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills.
"Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up," the doctor says. "Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then, just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water."
Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, "My goodness, Doc, exactly what's my problem?"
Says the doctor, "You're not drinking enough water

Why are you so worried about having no food? Won't you ever learn or understand? Are your hearts too hard to take it in? 'You have eyes -- can't you see? You have ears -- can't you hear?' Don't you remember anything at all?
Mark 8:13-18 NLT Ed. 1
A grandmother recently shared this story to illustrate the hearing and understanding problem.
Our five year old grandson couldn't wait to tell his grandfather about the movie we had watched on television, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." The scenes with the submarine and the giant octopus had kept him wide eyed.
In the middle of the telling, my husband interrupted him and asks, "What caused the submarine to sink?"
With a look of disbelief, he replied, "Grandpa, it was the 20,000 leaks!"
Could it be that we all, on occasion, have hearing problems, or at least understanding problems?
