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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

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

Anni - The inside RR I mentioned yesterday is Ken's HO Scale Train Layout that he has built in the basement.  Every so often I post a picture of a part of it. 

Deb - The cabin is in about the middle of Happy Trails and it is about 1/4 mile away from the house.

Hello and Happy Sunday to you. I like the word for today...Words, they can build you up or tear you down and once out of your mouth you can't get them back so always try to make them sweet. a young man recently complimented me on something, I got to thinking his words were the build you up kind. and they ripple :)

Goodness, I had a lot of catching up. I enjoy the 'words', with the Bible verse you share. I've never seen so much rock in one place. Bet it's nice having it there to use for projects. We, along with two other couples have been getting our muddy road fixed. It has been quite expensive getting the ditches made and the road pulled up but even more expensive was bringing in gravel for the road...$520.00 a load. You're so lucky to have the stone. An outhouse will be so cute there.

That is so true about words...

Wonderful Proverb! Hope your Sunday was good. I'm behind and my post for tomorrow will be a little late since we've been busy with our company.
