Calendars Today by Lois

Just living is not enough...
One must have sunshine,
freedom, and a little flower.

Hans Christian Anderson

Praise is like a muscle; if we don't exercise it regularly, it becomes
weak. But if we flex and extend an attitude of gratitude daily,
praise grows into
a strong, dependable force that nurtures hope and
carries us through the worst of circumstances.

Ever feel like a cloud is hanging over your head? Sometimes the cloud darkens
to the color of bruises, and we're deluged with cold rain that seem to never end.
When you're in the midst of one of life's thunderstorms,
tape this saying to your mirror:

Cry a river, laugh a rainbow. The rainbow, the symbol of hope that God
gave Noah after the
flood. It reminds us even today that
every storm will eventually pass.

Always look forward. Always move forward. Keep that two-stranded
rope strong, and never lose hope of a better tomorrow.

Laughter is to hope as nonstick cooking spray is to a shiny new muffin tin:
It keeps the goo from sticking. Once the batter of everyday
responsibility hardens and
adheres to our attitudes,
it's awfully hard to scrape off enough crust for hope

to shine through. But if we coat our day with a
little laughter , problems
will slide
 off a lot better. And hope sparkles.

By the end of the day most of us are ready to collapse.
 Tight schedules, relentless
deadlines, and plaguing debts make
our daily roads not just physically tiring but

mentally draining. Fill your buckets with living
water - read the Bible, listen to 
uplifting music, soak up
some inspiration any way available. It is then you will

enjoy some of life's refreshment and feel better.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was good. Starting to gear
up for Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is that time. I will be staying in today
I think - it is raining here in Ohio. I have plenty of inside things to occupy
my hours - so that is okay. I do hope you will
enjoy this day - do share me with friends, family and groups.
Please join me again tomorrow and as always all the email and
notes in my guest book are so appreciated. One last thing before
I close. We did change internet providers this weekend. Any
mail should now be sent to the following address if you need
to contact me for any reason. I think I have everything changed over,
but just in case for future reference here is my new email address:
