Books I've Read In 2018

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

A Sunbeam

When I was out walking this morning I saw the sun rays shining through the trees
and it brought to mind a little chorus we used to sing in 
Sunday School when I was a little girl.

 πŸŽΆ  Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam  πŸŽΆ 

1. Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,
To shine for him each day;
In ev'ry way try to please him,
At home, at school, at play.

Chorus
A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
Jesus wants me for a sunbeam.
A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
I'll be a sunbeam for him.

2. Jesus wants me to be loving
And kind to all I see,
Showing how pleasant and happy
His little one can be.

Words by Nellie Talbot
Music by Edwin O. Excell, 1851 - 1921



A Blessed Sunday to all.
Thanks for stopping by.

I remember singing that song in Sunday School when I was very small - in fact I think our little class was called Sunbeams, when I was only 3! Good memories . Have a wonderful week.
