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

Happy Sunday to you.

A Bible Verse For Sunday
 Titus 3:4
When the kindness and love of
God our Savior appeared,
He saved us,
not because of righteous things we had done,
but because of His mercy.
No walk for me yesterday.  We left early in the morning and went up to Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland again.  We have been looking at some land up there for a place where we can build a little rustic cabin and have a get away to enjoy the countryside.
Yesterday we found just the spot for us, put a bid in and it was accepted. We will soon be the owners of 8 acres of woods on a dead end road. It is about 8 miles from the lake in a little town called Accident!
Here's a few pictures.
Looking up the kind of driveway that is there.
 Standing in the middle of the land looking back out toward the road.  
Near the back of the land.
The view from the driveway.
We are pretty excited about it and look forward to the fun we will have there.
I skipped my walk again because i didn't think breathing in all that cold morning air would be good for my cough.  I do have some of the halls cough drops that you recommended Auntie and they are great!  Going out to get some more cough medicine when we go out later.  This isn't like me to be sick and i don't like it.  At least i don't really feel sick - i just tire easily and have this blasted cough.  

Skipping church today too.  Don't think i could sit there and not cough for a hour or so and i sing bad enough without trying to sing like this!!! : )  Besides don't want to pass it on to anyone.
Really sorry to miss church too because we are starting a new sermon series and really wanted to go.

Enjoy your Sunday and i hope you're in good health.  
Happyone : )
I believe in the sun even if it isn't shining.
I believe in love even when i am alone.
I believe in God even when He is silent.

    Tonight All-Hallows' Specter struts
    Along the moonlit way."
