An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

Thought for the day
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)

You may be facing a dead end right now — financial, emotional, or relational — but if you will trust God and keep on moving in faith, even when you don’t see a way, he will make a way.

Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” Matthew 25:21 (NIV)

The point of living your life to the fullest in every aspect is not to increase your reputation; it’s to make your life count for God

My “Top Ten” Unconventional Gratitude List


  1. Spoons: I love cereal — and thus need a spoon. My favorite cereal growing up was Frosted Flakes (very unhealthy). Now I enjoy my bowl of Gluten Free Rice Chex with Unsweetened Almond Milk nightly.
  1. Soap: Washing both body and clothing is an essential part of good hygiene and health. There is no greater feeling than being clean!
  1. Toilet paper: enough said!
  1. Color: A world without color would be boring! It’s powerful and pleasing. Yet I prefer “white” literally a “color without hue”.
  1. Deodorant and perfume: Life is simply better when we see our friends coming long before smelling them!
  1. Gloves: I have gloves and more gloves! Some gloves cover my entire hand (ranging from yard work to winter weather), while one pair I wear is fingerless (for cycling). But I don’t do mittens!    
  1. My favorite online shopping retailer. I have ordered everything imaginable (e-books, movies, electronics, apparel …. and even a lawnmower!).
  1. Apple: Who knew “an apple a day … ” meant an iPhone, iPad, Mac and an Apple watch. I’m not sure it keeps the doctor away but it surely makes life fun!    
  1. Laughter: He who laughs, lasts! It cures heavy hearts and tired minds and sick bodies. It is contagious and happiness inducing. I recommend it. Lots of it!!
  1. You: Grateful for all those who visit my blog!! Hopefully you leave injected with hope and humor for your day. “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22


Humor – November 25


Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.

During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy.

A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.

Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.

Thanksgiving day was approaching, and the family received a Thanksgiving card with a painting of a pilgrim family on their way to church.

Grandma showed the card to her small grandchildren, observing, “The Pilgrim children liked to go to church with their mothers and fathers.”

“Oh yeah?” her young grandson replied. “So why is their dad carrying that rifle?”

Someone showed me how static electricity worked today. I was shocked

Thought for the day
“Give God all your worries and all your cares for he is always thinking about you watching everything that concerns you” (1 Peter 5:7).

Whatever concerns you, concerns God. Whatever you’re worried about, whatever you’re afraid of, whatever keeps you up at night, whatever gets your attention, gets God’s attention. No one will care more about your life, so why not give him your life to care about?

“Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day.” – Robert Caspar Lintner

Thought for the day
“For he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.” Luke 1:48a (NIV)

No one cares more about your life than God. No man, no woman, not even you. That’s why God’s destiny is always the best. God loves you perfectly and he is always thinking about you and thinking about what is best for you.
