Events and Celebrations
NATIONAL DAY OF FORGIVENESS is here to heal you. It doesn’t mean you have to forget, nor does it mean you have to continue the relationship. It means – the debt has been paid according to you. This will free you to start the process of healing after being hurt. “Be kind, one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another – even as God, for Christ’s sake, has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32
Here is a big shout out to MORNING SHOW HOSTS DAY. These people get up real early to keep us informed and entertained. In my opinion, no one does it better than Maurice, Kent, Claire, and Laura on KMOV News 4, #n4tm, and Laura, Matt and Kent on Great Day St. Louis, #GDSTL. Keep up the good work.
With the cooler temps, it’s time to break out the Fall gear and NATIONAL SCARF DAY is a great way to start. Whether you wear them for style or functionality, put on your favorite and rock that look.
CRUSH A CAN DAY is all about the recycling. Rinse out those empties and crush them down to size. It’s good for the environment, good for taking a little aggression out, and it kinda looks cool while you are doing it.
Did someone say CORNED BEEF HASH DAY? I hope so because I am hungry. Processed foods are getting a bad rap nowadays but ignore that for today and open up that can of corned beef hash. Heat it up in the skillet and top it with a fried egg. That’ll get ya going.
CHOCOLATE MILK DAY may take you back to being a kid, but there is absolutely no reason you couldn’t enjoy a glass or two today, no matter how young at heart you are.
