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

A Gift

For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God

Not of works, lest any many should boast.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Ephesians 2:8 - 10

What a wonderful thing that God has given us the gift of eternal life.
There is nothing we can do earn salvation no matter how many good works we do.
The good works are done because we love God and I think of it as a way to say Thank You to God.

Sometime during church this morning it started snowing again and continues to snow this afternoon.
We stopped at Brenda's on the way home and had lunch there.  They make the best Caesar Salads there too!!

We enjoyed the Valentine Banquet last night.  The food was great and it was so nice getting to know people better.  There were games, a video skit we watched that two of the church members made that was really funny, a guest speaker and his wife played the piano and sang.  We are so glad we went and look forward to next years dinner.

A blessed Sunday to all.
