Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.

Romans

☃     ☃     ☃     ☃
We got a few more inches of snow overnight.  I walked 3 miles in the basement this morning and another 3 miles this evening when we got home so I got my full 6 miles of walking done.

Remember last Friday when we went to Staunton, VA to pick up the materials to put together the book of Romans in Spanish?  Well, today was the day we put some of them together.  We got to church at 10:00 and stayed till 5:00 with a break for lunch.  There is another working session this evening from 6:00 to 9:30 but we didn't stay.  Here are some of us working.  More people where there than is shown in the picture.  And people came and went during the day.  Ken is down at the last table working on one of the staple machines.
Here are the books put together and stapled.  They still need to be cut so all the pages are even but we don't have a cutter yet so that will be done by someone else. 
It is really fun and easy work putting the books together so it allows us to talk and visit with each other too.  We put together just over 3,000 of them.

So that's been my day.  I'm ready to go sit down, have some ice cream and watch a some television.

Hope your day has been bright and sunny.
happyone : )
Every day is a gift from God.
There's no guarantee of tomorrow,
so that tells me to see the good in this day
to make the most of it.

  1. Pretty snow picture at the start of your post. :) You certainly get a lot of it there.
    "Many hands make light work." Your copies of the book of Romans are looking good!
    Excellent quote by Joel. :)
