     In taking my 'brood of boys' to school this morn, I listened to a number of people respond to the question . . . 'What's Your Bright Side'?  (on a local radio station)
    People having more reasons to wake up on their "cloudy-side" shared stories of hope, happiness, attitudes of gratitude . . . LIFE!  What a fabulous way to wake up in the morning!
    Today, I have a choice!  I can live "beneath" . . .  "in" . . . or "on top" of my pain?  Most often, I fluctuate in and thru the three . . . but my "end of day score" needs to be "on top".   
    I am NOT a very competitive person . . . but in this, I want to win.  Why?  Because, Jesus did.

    Focus on your BRIGHT, LIGHT, SUNNY - SIDE!  Arrows most likely to be shot in the dark!

    It is our responsibility, as Christians, to take arrows out of the hands of our siblings!  We are family.  Love never far away.
