Outdoor Vignettes

 


It takes a creative hand to make outdoor garden vignettes.

One of my dearest cousins, Marianne, has this capability.


She can put together the simplest objects to make a charming and delightful little scene.


Look at the creative yet simple vignettes she has in her lakeside back yard!




Aren't they adorable?  


It's great to be able to make something beautiful for everyone to enjoy.

New Day of Life, New Day to Cherish


 If there's one thing to be learned in life, even as one enters the winter of one's years on earth, it's that each new day is something to be cherished.

It's so easy to feel one's self falling into the doldrums.  

 Life can be so difficult, at times, and on those days, giving up may seem like the best option.

But, this, too, shall pass.  Nothing ever stays the same forever.

Each day one gets up, takes a deep breath, and gives thanks to the Creator for a brand new day of life, is a good day!

Enjoy each moment.

WHAT COULD GIVE YOU JOY TODAY?

Gift of Another Day

Each day we wake up and realize we are still alive and on the planet, Earth, it is something to celebrate. 

It's good to start each new day of life with gratitude, just for being alive.

There are so many hundreds of gifts given to most of us in any given day.

A very dear cousin, Marianne, lives very near a beautiful lake in western Massachusetts.

While visiting her recently, a walk to the edge of the lake seems like a great idea.

The day could not have been more perfect.

The water, the blue sky, the fluffy, white clouds, the not-too-hot temps, and spending time with a beloved cousin, all could become part of the gifts that deserve deep gratitude.

Try to count some of your own gifts from today and you may be surprised.

They add up quickly.

 So does saying "thank you" to the One who gives us everything.

HAVE YOU EVER KEPT A GRATITUDE JOURNAL?
