Kev’s Daily Take On 12/19/2022

 I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

For Fun

LOOK FOR AN EVERGREEN DAY appreciates these beautiful trees that keep their color all year long.  When the leaves have fallen off most of the other trees, the pines and firs provide some color on the landscape.  It’s not too late to pick out your Christmas tree, but this day also reminds us that time is running out.

On Today’s Menu…

Taste of Home

OATMEAL MUFFIN DAY is a great way to start the day with a heart healthy breakfast.  Add some nuts, spices or fruit for a truly delicious snack.

HARD CANDY DAY actually has some health benefits of its own.  Lemon drops can soothe a sore throat and peppermint can help an ailing stomach.  Besides that, it is all about the sugar and the colors.  Tis the season to lay out a dish of these sweet treats.

Thank you, most high God, for your love, patience and blessings.  May whoever is reading this be cared for and blessed.  Let them know that they are who they are supposed to be, where they are supposed to be and that they are a wonderful creation.  Also, LORD, we would ask for a successful surgery for Gabe.  Let him be healed and give the doctors the skill they need to accomplish this.  Give him and his family strength, and patience to endure this.  Thank you, Jesus, Amen.
