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.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

My Lamp

 2 Samuel 22:29,31
O Lord, You are my lamp.
The Lord lights up my darkness.
He is a shield for all who look to
Him for protection.

It was 33 degrees this morning when I left and 28 when I got back home.  Seems to me that the temperature is going in the WRONG direction!  I walked around the lake and was surprised to see about a dozen people there on an early Sunday morning.  The fox was out again, and I also saw another Robin and a deer.
I walked just over 6 miles.

It's time to have some breakfast and then get ready to go to church.
Have a blessed day my friends.
Start your day by thanking God for all your blessings and your day will be a happy one.
Happyone :-)


  1. Much love to you, my friend, keep smiling and holding that head up high! You are an inspiration... (hug)

  2. The weather has been fine here as well.. although the cold has taken a backseat, the winds have been terrible... they are so strong and cold...

  3. As to the temp falling, early in the day... Seems that it does that, in cold weather, sometimes. Like sort-of-right-before or at sunrise, it will get a bit colder... Have you ever noticed that?

    Sorry to mention sadness, but have you seen Dear Vee's post of today, Sun.?

    Hugs & ♥'s...
    'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

  4. You really inspire me friend! I am going to do my best to take better care of myself this year and you are my inspiration to take the time to do this. Sorry that you received that ugly comment--and that is just what it was--ugly and unkind. I know that our time is coming to have that happen. Sad that there are some unhappy people out there who have nothing better to do than share their misery in such an unkind way! I think your sharing of your life is lovely and meaningful and we can only pray that person finds some happiness in their own life so they don't spew their own unhappiness on others.
    Hope you have a lovely week and I'll be checking in!

  5. Your photo is a wonderful illustration for these verses. Thank you.

  6. Gorgeous capture my friend!! I am hoping for warmer weather soon .... but it may be a month or so away.

  7. You are a true inspiration to us all.
