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

Sunrise, Sunset, Hymn, and Verse

 Happy Sunday

A pretty start to the day.
A reflection of the sun on fog.
Picture taken last Monday from the lower cemetery.

The ending of a day.
Pink sky from my front porch.

A hymn for Sunday

🎢 Our Great Savior 🎢

Jesus! what a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.

Jesus! what a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him;
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my strength, my vict'ry wins.

Jesus! what a Help in sorrow!
While the billows o'er me roll;
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my Comfort, helps my soul.

Jesus! what a Guide and Keeper!
While the tempest still is high;
Storms about me, night o'er takes me.
He, my Pilot hears my cry.

Jesus! I do now receive Him,
More than all in Him I find;
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.


Hallelujah! what a Savior! Hallelujah! what a friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

πŸ“–    πŸ“–    πŸ“–

 Isaiah 43:11
I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

A Blessed Sunday to all.

We have so many cloudy days that seeing a colouful evening sky is rare. But last evening we also had pink sky and I would have liked to take a picture but unfortunately there were dozens of electrical wires in the way.
